This will bring you to Terrapin Nature Park, which is open Dawn to Dusk.

This is part of my Cross Island Trail series. There are acres & acres of things to see here. Different habitats, birds, white tail deer, some creepy crawly slithers that are REALLY BIG & more flowers that you can count.

This will either be near the beginning or near the end of your CIT journey. From the parking lot it will be just a little bit over 1/4 mile walk to GZ but it will be interesting.

As you walk or bike along the trail (if you parked here to start) just before you get to the little wooden bridge there is a small grave yard off to the left (or to the Bay side). The best I could make out for a date was 1806. Then you'll continue along the path & if you watch closely on the left will be the 0.25 mile maker. Just beyond that is where you'll search for this cache.

If you look you will be able to tell that the deer use this area to rest. However across the path in the high reed area is where they travel through. You will be able to see some of their many trails here & if you are lucky & go real early you may even see them in the reeds. This was the main reason I chose this location

You will need to be careful as you approach GZ as it will be very prickly. Also be mindful on the local residents as they come from the marsh area to this area as well. Actually the slithers are all around the park area. EEEEWWWWWW!!!!! :)

The other reason I chose this location was the view you get as you return to the parking lot. The view, although a bit distant, is a pretty cool angle on the Bay bridge. There are usually some Eagles in the air to watch also.

Please be careful of the wild life & the environment as much of it is much more fragile than it appears. Follow the rules of the park, spend some time exploring & most of all ENJOY!

I spent the day caching with wizardofmd69 and suzanne. It's a good thing they both had phones to get on the net, as my pocket query somehow failed to load properly and the nearest cache I had was over 30 miles away. Knowing MW, I knew not to get to deep into the brush and made the find quickly. TFTC

This was "one for the road". I initially had trouble finding the parking spot because I was paying too much attention to the GPS and not enough attention to the obvious. I was rather surprised to find a lot of cars in the lot in spite of the oppressive heat and humidity. This was a goodie. I like places these places that an ordinary tourist wouldn't find. The "hike" was short and sweet. I followed the obvious geo-trail to the hiding spot and found it rather quickly in spite of the fact that it's a dinkly little thing. TNLN. Thanks for nice diversion from a long drive home to SWPA. Johnny.
