Densmore Creek


 


Densmore Creek Falls is one of those hidden little gems that goes unnoticed right in our own community. Well, now there is a letter box cache hidden creek side for you to find while enjoying the falls. The falls is a series of ledges that drop about 10' and a 15' cascade over shale rock. Park at the bridge on Densmore Road at 43* 11.377 / 77*  33.021 and walk the creek bed until you see an established trail on the north side of the creek. It is private property where the creek fronts Densmore Road but a short distance downstream  the property belongs to the city of Rochester.


Since the cache is located fairly close to Rte. 590 and some cachers might want to cache and dash from the expressway or the nearby apartment community, you MUST email the cache owner with the coordinates of the north side of the top of the water falls before you can log your find. Once you have received confirmation you then can log your find. The falls are closer to the recommended parking than any other "backdoor" routes. 


The letter box is a black video cassette case, inside there is a stamp for your own personal log book and a log book for you to sign or stamp. Please do not leave ANYTHING in the container, if you are willing to leave something then it is not worthy of being left behind.


Part of the fun of looking for a cache is leaving the hiding area in the same condition as when you visited it. Please lift and look without moving or disturbing.


I recommend waterproof boots.


 


Cache will be difficult to find once the snow falls, if I can figure out a way to create a tough above ground hide I will move it. The cache is currently in a somewhat protected area however when the snow swirls around who knows.

The cache is roughly 20' from the creek bed.

Clever hide and nice walk. The water isn't too high and probably the easiest place to walk.

Went looking for this one in the morning by myself, with no luck. Took my 10 year old son with me in the afternoon and he found it within a few minutes. What a cacher he's turning out to be!

Nice walk along creek. Bill found cache at 2:30PM (after I had already looked in that exact place, but obviously not well enough). It's a Wheely-good hide! Logged in, grabbed our 1st to find card and trashed out. (Lots of foam insulation boards fallen in creek area to be picked up due to construction going on in area.)

Thanks for the walk in the light snowfall!
