Park at the Boot Hills Historical plaque. N 42 41.651 W 81 42.333 (Shhhh there is a GC cache here). Near the base of the steps you will see a trail leading down the hill into the woods. Take this trail, it will take you over a small creek (there is a bridge) and to a river.

Here is where the fun begins. Once you get to ground zero the find is pretty easy. Key word being "Once" you get there. The trail ends at a river, to your left is the road and a way to cross. To your right when the water levels are low are some rocks that are easy to navigate.



During high water season use the road crossing and respect the water. I don't know how swollen this river gets in the spring so be mindful!!


Once across the river it is pure bushwacking!!!! You will know you are close when you reach a clearing with a fallen tree.


The cache is 170m from the historical plaque so it may seem like a quick grab but it is not. Give yourself at half an hour.

Visited the Battle site and hiked to the GZ of this cache. Never found yet, and hopefully still there at the base of a tree after 5 years...

Well, no, it wasn't there. All the clearings that might have been there in the past are filled in with thorny brambles, Found a hollow tree pretty close to the ostensible GZ, and at the end of a dead horizontal tree. 

Placed a new cache at about 1 m altitude from the ground within the hollow portion of this tree. Hope the CO doesn't mind. Ready for the next opencacher to find it...

Cheers, and with this I claim the FTF too! Woo hoo! Cool site too, very historic, an authentic War of 1812 battle site.
