Cache is located in the Watkins Glen State Park.If you take the best route,you'll be climbing some steps.But the scenery is fabulous.
Cache is a red/white 1 gallon Igloo drink jug.Contents include a log book & some neat caching related stuff.There two possible routes to take to this cache.Treat yourself & don't take the shortest one.It's only about .1 of a mile shorter,so go for the gusto & attack from the parking lot at N42 22.521,W 076 52.381.There is a $5.00 charge to get in to any area of the park, unless you park in the village & take a little walk to the park entrance.If you've never been there before,you won't be disappointed.Cache co-ordinates taken off my Vista & III Plus.Tree cover is pretty heavy after you get on the paths, but I had good satellite coverage till I had to leave the paths right near the cache area.A compass might be helpful.Enjoy. --Gimpy--

Prof & I were in the area to plant a cache of our own and decided to check this one out. The prof got the 1st Huckle Buckle for the year against RoadKill. The container seems to be holding up to the weather as the contents was dry for the most part. Trinkets on the inside needed a boost so we took nothing and left a dollar. The Glen's main trail opens on Memorial Day but the trails to this cache are open now. This is another great cache by Gimpy.

Prof & Road Kill are grinning

We were camping at the State Park this weekend so this was on our list of activities. A good hike and easy find, even though we lost the sats a couple times. I wasn't sure it would be there since there had been no on-line logs in nearly a year. But we were the third ones to find it today and there had been others earlier in the week. The container was well hid, but not camoflaged enough; we tried to remedy this. We took a toy and added a jax game. The container was packed!

2nd of 4 finds today Found at 11:50 AM
Donna spotted this one first. Kids playing on the hill nearby made it tough to retrieve the cache and re-hide it without them seeing what we were doing. But I think we did it. It was really out in the open so we covered it up a little better. Being red, it really sticks out. Signed log, took/left nothing. Thanks Gimpy for one of the 3 hides we found in this great park today.

We found this one at 6:30pm. It was our 3rd cache of the day. Took awhile to find it. We took a large clear ball and left a letter opener. I have to say, it was an interesting container!

Found this at 9:50 AM. Took a much needed band aid. The cache was sitting on the hill not hiding or covered about a foot from what looked like its spot. So we put it there and when we returned home and looked at the picture, it looks like it is now where it belongs.

We went on the search for this cache right after we checked into the Glenora Inn for our Anniversary (18 years!). We decided to do the cache before dinner so we parked in the parking lot (it now costs $6 to get in). Mike figured out 2 different routes to get up. We tandemed the main routes and seemed to cut some time off our hike (it was 88 out and very humid...My head looked like and upside down thermometer as we arrived near the spot). The tree cover interfered with the GPS reading so Mike was 20ft away as I looked over the surroundings and recalled the cache description...just then I looked down and amazed myself by finding it. It was nicely hidden and in good shape all contents were dry...but crowded....We hoped that the cachers hat was still inside but a family beat us by one day...(logged in the notebook). So we took a weather radio and a flashlight. Left 3 well sealed poptarts (it's a good hike so thought the snacks would be welcome), honeymoon hippos and a large crystal for the tree........It wasn't the same without the rest of the fam but we had one terrific ;.) Anniversary!! Thanks for the hunt!! Hilton fam -3
