Description EN

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.

 

WARNING!!! 

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.
