This Cache is located in Gunpower Falls State Park in Fallston. While the access trail is pretty tame at first it does get a little rough and at points is very close to the river. This may not be the best cache for a small child or a not so outdoor skilled dog (also park regulations do require all dogs be leashed). Please allow for about 1 to 2hrs to do this cache and remember that the park closes at dusk.


Access to the cache should be made by parking near the intersection of Bottom Rd & Guyton Rd. You will see an area with parking where many people swim. To save you a lot of trouble in the long run the cache is located on the Harford County side of the water (as is the parking area).
It is advisable that you bring a small pack with at least water and a small firstaid kit as this is a little bit of a hike on a trail that is at times a little rough. As the name implies the theme of this cache is the "10 essentials" for the outdoors. The cache is in a clear tupperware container with a blue lid. If possible please attempt to trade keeping with the theme of the cache however this is not required.

Some of the contents include:
-Logbook with pencil
-Stash Note
-Emergency rain poncho
-Emergency space blanket
-Flashlight
-Sunglasses
-Compass
-Whistle
-9hr emergency candle
-Waterproof matches

We have been wanting to do this one for a while, today was the day. We finished all the other caches along the Gunpowder, this was our last one to do. A great hike in, no one else out today. Did not see any deer, lot of tracks. Found the cache, TNSL left a compass lanyard, and the Pilot's TB.
Thanks for the fun, THE DAM TROLLS
