Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

You are searching for a regular sized container.

The geocache is located just outside the Lakeland Highlands Scrub, one of Polk County's Environmental Lands.  If you haven't been out here recently you should check it out...There are new pavilions with grills, and a new boardwalk across the wetlands.

The Scrub is also home to the rare and threatened Florida Scrub Jay. Consider yourself privileged if you run across these cheerful, friendly birds during your hike.

Please sign in at the information board near the trail head, and note that you're there to geocache. Polk County's Environmental Lands Program is receptive to caching. Signing in shows that you appreciate this. Please be respectful of this property, its vegetation & wildlife and remain on the marked hiking trails.

	26 May 2013 DudleyGrunt Didn't find it

Attempted this afternoon, but no luck.  Found part of another multicache, though.  Talked to some folks who had been working on an Earthcache about OpenCaching.US.

Hopefully, next time I come down.  I have family in Lakeland, so I will be back.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Made a special trip to grab this OCUS cache.  I was in Tampa for an event and the drive to Lakeland was pretty quick so I gave it a shot.  Time was a little short so I was happy see the spot was nearly a park and grab.  For an OCUS box it sure has a lot of signatures in the logbook and for a little irony some geocaching.com stickers.  I traded for those and left a bunch of other swag to lighten my load.  Spotted a 4 foot black snake on the way out, sunning himself on the sand.  Thanks for the OCUS find in Florida.

I just found out about this caching site...I like it!  I may try to find this cache this weekend if I get that far north in my adventures.  I wish more people woudl discover the different caching sites available instead of ONLY sticking with gc.com!

I was caching in Lakeland Highlands Scrub Preserve and "accidently" stumbled upon this cache. I was not aware of this other caching site until I discovered this cache. I copied the information from the log book and here I am to log it. I see that no one else has found it since the FTF logged it. The cache is in fine shape - maybe someone else will discover it like I did. TFTC.
