This cache is located in a special area that is very important to me. This forest has provided me with a great deal of memories. Despite everything that has gone on and the fact that life continues to move along regardless, I always know I can rely on these woods to provide me with serene and peaceful feeling.

With that thought in mind, I wanted to give others the opportunity to get away and enjoy a beautiful walk through a very diverse section of woods. This cache is a multi-part letterbox that will take you on a circa 2-mile roundtrip hike through the Wyoming County Forest. The first stage is not located at the coordinates above, however it will aid you in starting your journey. To find the first leg of your hike, you will need to utilize the following clues:

At the coordinates above, walk approximately 50-60 feet at a bearing of 220 degrees into a dark and majestic stand of towering conifers.

As you do so you should make an effort to channel your childhood and sing the Sesame Street favorite, “One of these trees is not like the other, one of these trees just doesn’t belong.”

There you will soon find a tree that most certainly does not fit the scheme…and within a 5-foot radius of that tree you will find the coordinates for the next stage of your journey.


All stages of this cache are located near the trail and are in plain sight when viewed from the appropriate angle. Therefore, the recommended course of action would be to remain on the trail for as long as possible and to not disturb any of the surroundings when seeking each leg. This way you will be assured an enjoyable and serene experience. My sincerest gratitude in advance for those people who see this place for all it’s beauty like I do.
