Fear not! This is not a 2 mile walk! WNY's first, and NY State's 2nd, Opencache is located along the banks of Two mile creek in Tonawanda, NY. It is a 2 leg multi with both legs not far off a paved bike trail. It's pretty common for creeks to be named for their length from source to mouth in NY and Ontario. I can't speak for anywhere else though, I haven't studied creek naming conventions elsewhwhere.
Two mile creek has it's source at a pond located on the property of Praxair, Inc. on Sheridan Drive in the Town of Tonawanda, although I doubt this is it's original, natural source. It flows approximately 2 miles to it's confluence with the Niagara River in the City of Tonawanda in Niawanda Park, where a pedestrian bike trail bridge crosses it mere feet from it's confluence.
At the listed coordinates, you will find a screw-top plastic container, which once contained yummy Target brand smoked almonds, with coordinates for the final cache, a small lock-n-lock container. Whose idea was it that legs of a multi-cache had to be "micros in the woods", anyways?
I'd say your total round-trip walk along this nice bike trail is less than 1/2 mile total. Parking coordinates provided.
