Description EN

You are looking for a 0.8L Lock-N-Lock container in the woods.  The hide shouldn't pose a lot of difficulty.  The hike is not long and is mostly on trails.  When seeking this cache, take the main trail and then turn left onto the first major trail you encounter.  It may seem like a good idea to bushwack sooner but the growth is dense.  At least until you hit the swamp...  Stay on the trails until you get close.  The cache is about 300 feet from the trail.

I have included jpeg map of the trail system.  Feel free to use it for all you caching needs in the park.

Parking is available at the posted parking waypoint.  The park is open dawn to dusk.  Please do not night cache!

As always, replace the cache as found and enjoy!
