Welcome to Liberty State Park!

To visit this virtual cache you will have to walk through a small patch of woods and enter a salt marsh. It can get a little bit wet, maybe even muddy. You DO NOT have to cross any fences or bodies of water to reach the destination. Follow the trail. Terrain is rated high as a worst case scenario. Marsh trail conditions vary greatly but you can typically get to the coordinates with dry feet.

Leashed pets and kids (leashed or unleashed at parents discretion) will enjoy this too! Once you get to ground zero, a unique surprise awaits. No spoilers please!

Parking is free and New Jersey Transit stops nearby. There are no park entrance fees at all. Bring a camera and try to visit around dawn or dusk - there are some incredible views of Manhattan and Lady Liberty from here. Enjoy!

After visiting you'll be curious as to what you just saw. Google Charles Simonds Left Turns for more info.

Stopped by today to see if I could still find the old Rook in the Reeds. Success! But it didn't come easily. Grapevines have ensnared the places where I entered those many years ago but at least everything was dry today. You might try entering from a rogue trail well to the south. Walk up from the "Muddy Waters" earth cache and keep your eyes peeled to the left. Enjoy! The object of the virtual is in great shape!
