Recommended parking is at N 43 13.897 W 77 33.269. As you proceed to the cache you should be on a trail the whole way stop and marvel the awesome sight at 43 13.931 / 77 33.193 you will not see many of these.

very interesting trail, not used very often, but yet packed down in some areas. the cache was very exposed, so i hid it a little better. apparently a scout troop found this one since the last log. TFTC and taking me to a place i wouldnt have known about, didnt see the TB, but i wasnt looking for it so i might have missed it

Was a warm 60 degree November day when we did this cache!! My sidekick Bearcub had a friend come along for the first time. His name is Jacob and he had lots of fun. The cache was simple and the view was even better. Have a couple of pics for ya'll to look at.

Had a great time getting to this one. Not only was the walk very scenic, but the mood was also enhanced by the various birds calls. Took nothing, left Harry Houdini travel bug. We picked him up in new york city and he's heading out to Wisconsin. Thanks for getting us out to this area of the park.

A bunch of us decided to head out for this after leaving the picnic - Berkmom, Berkinator13, Brogan, Geo, Dekaner, J-Ra, Jockwannabe, Mr Mom and some other cacher - Goo-be-gone I think she's called. Being a slow poke tonight, I ended up losing the group! With no flashlight, it just made the cache more adventurous. After finding the cache, we all signed the log book, took the last picture, and sent Goo-be-gone to rehide the cache. Then suddenly all the lights went out!!!

Thanks for the cache and the great nighttime adventure.

This was an interesting hike through woods and swamp, really out in nature. The kids found the cache with a little help from Rocky. Great hide. Thanks for the cache. nana & papa (papac2)

Found this one with Bear-ied Cache during the NY-GO picnic event.
The moss on the ground was like a soft carpet and the fragrance of honeysuckle made this a great walk.
Thanks for introducing us to the area.
P.S. We really enjoyed meeting the Wheelygood family today!

I decided to go after this one after the sheriff's told me the gates closed at 11pm in the park itself.

True to form, I went in on the wrong side of the swamp. I ended up walking all the way around the back and had to cross 2 fallen trees to get to the cache. I took nothing and left nothing except pic 9 on the camera. I saw stars all the way out!

Thanks for another fun hide!

Found it only a lovely Memorial Day - people all over the park, but definitely no one in this section becides the local fauna and one muddy geocacher! I've never been over here, and from the near-pristine condition I'd gather that goes for most people. Quite a lovely spot, thank you!

Found it at 10 AM. Nice walk to the cache spot. Had to cover up the cache as it was a little exposed. Took nothing, left nothing.

Decided to do some night caching. Easy walk even at night altho it looked like the area may have taken some beating from ice storm. Followed some fresh footprints in the snow still on path, had a feeling we would be 2nd to find. Found cache at 10:50PM. Dropped off Touralis TB (he's a Cannonball Racer). Maybe this cache will get more traffic for him to get moving. Thanks for the nice walk.
