Cache located in the Bristol hills.It is in a state multiple use area with paths & some fairly steep terrain.
Cache is a retired 30 cal. ammo box,green with white lettering.Contents include the usual inexpensive stuff,a log book & a couple of wheresgeorge bills. 30 cal. not very large so won't hold big items very well.Nice area with paths up the mountain.Vegetation gets pretty dense but my III Plus & eTrex Vista held satellites all the way to the cache.Bug spray might be in order but I had no problem without it.After a rain, footing could be touchy.Cache is only about 20 ft. off the path, but oh what a path.Cache co-ordinates are averaged between both my III Plus & Vista. Enjoy----Gimpy

Judy and I went on a snowshoe hike and as I was looking at the GPSr I saw that I had loaded this cache last year and never had a chance to find it. We decided to go for it! The coordinates were perfect! Took nothing, left nothing.
33 degrees, 12inches of snow, some sun, a little windy and ZERO bugs.
Thanks for a great cache, JJW team: Judy & John

After dropping the girls off at Bristol for day 1 of a 3 day ski camp and since the snow/trail conditions are not exactly ideal for more advanced skiers I decided to hike Stid Hill. I parked in the lot and found the white trail that lead into the woods, stopped and took a few photos where the little drainage wash crosses the trail. From there I headed towards the cache and picked up the blue trail, found the cache without trouble less than .5 mi. from the parking, I cleaned out the business cards, ticket stubs and left a log. I then continued and wandered around for another 3 mi. If there is any water flowing check out the falls at 42 45.598 / 77 23.752.
I enjoyed the hill, I hope others enjoy the photos.

Found it at 11:10 AM. Find an alternative parking area and walked .7 to the cache slightly downhill. Enjoyed the walk and the area. Took nothing, left nothing.

Nice little hike in yet another public area that we didn't
know existed. The trail was in amazingly good condition,
especially considerating all the rain recently. The
berries will probably be ripe in a couple weeks.

5th of 6 finds today. Nice walk in the woods. Didn't find climb that bad since it went across the hill instead of straight up. No trouble finding. Cache in good shape. At cache, GPS said 0.00 feet to go!!! As we were loging in a couple of hikers went by on the closer path. Don't think they even noticed what we were doing. Logged in, took nothing - left nothing. Thanks Gimpy for the nice hide and helping me get into this sport.
P.S. Sorry we couldn't make the picnic yesterday. Would have liked to meet you - maybe next year.

Had to try finding this since it was between 'The Jumpoff' and home. Left my wife in the car and hiked, the long way, through very squishy (ankle deep) spring thaw. Once I found the trail I got a good workout. Proud of myself for finding this without any printed material from the website.

President's B-Day Week - Son went skiing at Bristol Mt., I went caching. Nice cache spot! I should have cheated, I parked in the 'other' parking spot, it was still a nice hike from there. Amazing winter, being able to GEOcache in February in the Bristol Hills! I was a little hesitant about going for this cache, since it hadn't been visited since Oct. 27th. Still there - in good shape. Thanks for the hunt Gimpy.

This was the 2nd of 4 caches today. I thought geez this is pretty easy. The trails were pretty nice. I got within .12 miles of the cache, and did not see any trails going that way. Issaquah Puppy and I left Otter in one of the open fields hoping she wouldn't get shot by the hunter we saw prowling around. We tried to use our FRS radios to keep in touch but the batteries were dead. I wished I was wearing bright orange. I started bushwacking...actually it was crawling up small rabbit runs under thorned vines. I did this for almost 100 feet then I ran into a trail. I followed the trail up, and a couple small offshoots later Issaquah Puppy and I found the cache. I left a book, and took a Wheres George dollar. I followed the trails back and easily found my way out without facing the thorns again.
