Comments:
I recently visited the cache and posted some pics of the general area here on the Navicache.com website. Take a look at the pics as the area is quite beautiful!

There's quite a bit of tree cover here during the spring and summer months which could make locating the cache a bit more difficult during this time.

Maps are queued for generation.

Nice scenic hike from the parking area. Bring a camera or your dog for the day.


People saavy to the area will know to park elsewhere for a shorter hike but they'd be missing out on a great walk across the Genessee River Walkway. Park free at the Maplewood Park parking lot (N. 43 degrees 11.696 W. 77 degrees 37.301) and walk across the road to the Walkway to make this about 1 1/4 miles as the crow flies. Once across, keep the river to your left and follow the walking trail all the way back past the Seneca Park Zoo and old Trout Lake. The area is generally easy walking and well traveled by other hikers and bikers. Lots of people bring their kids and dogs here and you can visit the zoo for a nominal fee (about 4-5 dollars per person) or use the various free picnic areas or kiddie playgrounds. People may even be fishing in the "lake". Lots of wildlife here, such as chipmunks, woodpeckers, and even deer.
The cache is hidden in a small red metal lunchbox under a fallen tree trunk. Inside you'll find lots of small trinkets, like a souvenir Coca-Cola pocket knife, sunglasses, hockey cards, and more!

Once you find the cache, don't stop there! Follow the trail further north and enjoy the scenery! There are stairs and walkways down to the river and even a small waterfall if you go far enough back.

Other than the walk, the location and terrain is easy enough for anyone. This is my first cache.. enjoy!
