Description   EN   

This cache is located in Shiawassee Park in Farmington, Michigan.  This city park closes at 10:00 PM.  There are three parking lots.  The most convenient parking lot to the cache is the one located off Power Road nearest Grand River Avenue.  The most convenient parking lot to the children's play area and the bathrooms is located off Shiawassee Road nearest Farmington road.


The cache is located away from the more visited areas of the park.  It is a camo painted small Rubbermaid container but it does have a log book and some trade items.  Please bring your own pencil or pen.


This cache is accessible with some snow on the ground.  It may not be accessible if there is a lot of snow on the ground.  It looks like the bridge is not properly cleared during the winter so please be on the lookout for slippery spots on the bridge.

We hope you enjoy our neighborhood park as much as we do.

I used a GPS averaging app on my phone to try to improve the coordinates.  I have updated the north portion to N42 27.782.

Use a good GPS to find this one... I used an iPad which is not nearly as precise as my Garmin...

Spoiler.... no need to pick up any logs since it's not technically underneath (contrary to the hint).  You'll need good eyes to see this one before getting too dirty.

Nice, quiet area of the park.  You'll have few worries about muggles.

Thanks for the cache, Doug!

I spent around 20 minutes looking for this one.  I used the other waypoint from the hint to no avail. The 27.785 one put in an area the matched the hint better.

We searched for this one for about 30 minutes. When our butts were well frozen, we headed out. Not sure why we couldn't find it. After doing two other caches by the CO we figured that his coordinates would be very good. Maybe it just got buried under the leaves.
