Cache Attributes

Kid Friendly In the Woods Listed on OCNA Only 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

We revised a section of the Bruce Trail to pick up two caches previously listed on the failed Garmin site; both were located on Bruce Trail Conservancy land, and they banned cache placements about a year ago. Both caches were placed in August 2012, long before the ban. We found one of them.

This one was placed outside the Conservancy land, where cache placements are allowed. The land is owned by the municipality.

One of the kids thought up the name for this cache. It might make sense to you when you see the cache placement, if you are familiar with the wild flower bearing that name. Jack was with us (our dog).


The cache is a small nalgene bottle, painted green. It's about 75ml volume, therefore classifies as a micro (although on the larger end of micro). It contains a logsheet and a pencil. May be frozen in place in the winter.

Once home, I realized that this cache is 73
meters (239 feet) from another micro cache (GC3BHRF - we found that one back in 2012 when we placed the two Garmin caches; it was our 100th cache find! http://coord.info/GL91QDD8).That one is located along the Oakridge side trail, "below" the Bruce trail; it's a preform tube with a blue lid and hidden in a rock; my cache is a larger, hidden in a tree just off off the main trail. Why not park on Oakridge drive, enjoy the hike, and find both? FWIW, we parked at the end of Gray Rd, and took the steep trail leading up.
