Welcome to the second installment of P-Man's FLT.


The mission of the Finger Lakes Trail is "...to build, protect, promote, and enhance a continuous footpath across New York State. Forever!" The trail is comprised of 561 miles of main trail and 351 miles of branches. It extends from the New York-Pennsylvania state line in Allegany State Park and runs to Long Path in the Catskill Forest Preserve. The over 911 miles of trails are maintained by volunteer "sponsors" and crosses an equal amount of private land as it does public land. Many sections of the FLT have been designated as parts of the North Country National Scenic Trail that when completed will contain 4600 miles of trails for hiking enjoyment. For all the information on the FLT visit FLT Conference!

You will be looking for a 3 stage multi cache on a section of the Finger Lakes Trail adopted by our friendly caveman, Paleoman52 and his lovely counterpart, Dehgewanus. This section of the trail takes you through a majestic wooded lot between Graham and Camp roads. I want everyone to find every leg on this cache to enjoy the beauty of this trail so take your time, use your eyes, and let the satelites settle at every leg. You will be rewarded with a more enjoyable experience. The final is a small 4"X5" watertight container. I do recommend boots of some sort. Do not go here in anything less. I have posted trailhead coordinates below.

If you have not already, visit P-Man's FLT on the other geocache site by Howie and Zoggy. It is a great hike to another majestic spot on the other section of trail P-Man and Dehgewanus adopted and is not far from here!

Remember that this trail crosses private property. If you abuse it, we lose it! Please stay on the trail as you travel between legs. The trail is clearly marked by white blazes along the way. The legs are also hidden close to the trail so the surrounding area gets as little impact as possible. The FLT is a footpath and no bikes, horses, motorized vehicles, or snowmobiles are allowed.

For the FTF, there is a gold $1 coin and a 2008 Canadian Armestince Quarter. Also I am doing something different with this cache. After the first ten logs, I will put all the finders in a hat and have Mrs.S draw a name for a handmade walking stick. Good luck and thank you for visiting.

This cache is also listed on the Geocaching.com website.
