Emery Park, one of Erie Co. Parks, located south of Buffalo, in the Towns of Aurora and South Wales.
Josiah Emery owned 175 acres in the town of Aurora. He and his family worked the land for over 100 yrs.. In 1925 the Parks Commission purchased the 175 acre property from Helen B Emery. Highlights were the Rock Garden, a 600 person amphitheater, a Formal Garden, a Stone Arch Footbridge and the Emery Inn. The Inn, est. in 1926, used as a museum and restaurant, was the former home of the Emery's. The Park contains sixty nine structures, 95% of the structures built in or before 1935. Emery Park has evolved into a 489 acre park.

The Park offers a natural environment for family gatherings. One of our nature trails was constructed by our Parks Rangers and is approximately 1 mi. long. Other features include: baseball, softball, biking, hiking trails, picnic facilities, x-country skiing and downhill- skiing, snowmobiling and tobogganing.

Cache Info: GPS and Compass Required

Enter the park from the south (suggested), Rt. 400 / Rt. 16 entrance. Follow the signs to the Ski Lodge / Lift on the right. At the first “Y” stay left to Bathrooms area and park here at N42°43.055 W078°35.715 . This is a two (2) leg multi - cache. Head down the roadway staying left until you see the memorial marker “State Forester”. Read the info on the memorial. Subtract the day he was born from the day he died. Your sum will give you the paces needed to find the micro. Head 110° xxxx paces, and find the center. Look on the back side to get your coords. for the final cache. The final cash is a 50 cal. cache can. I used the trails to place the cache. There is no need to bushwhack if you stay on the trail. Please be aware of others, when retrieving the final cache, and please put it back as you found it, it should be well hidden.

Temp. Added Note: When you exit Rt. 400 and join Rt. 16, please be careful. There is major construction on the roadway. Also, after you enter the park area, be aware of construction going on in the park areas. They are putting in new water lines thru the park. There may be times that certain gates are closed. I spoke with Charlie, the park manager, and he stated the seasonal roads will be open soon. They are temporary blocked as of this posting, and will be updated. If you use your senses, you can find other ways in or around where you have to get to.

A very nice multicache. I enjoyed the way this one was put together. I took a small deck of cards and I left a couple of carabineers. Thanks for the cache! -Paleoman52-

Just catching up on some logs.


WOW! A man should not have to sweat this much when there is snow on the ground. We did this one second in this park today. By the time I made it back to the car I was spent. Ran into part of the DLKempf group on the way back out. The best part of caching is the people you meet. The snow helped your camo on this one.
Thanks for another great cache.

(Sal, both these caches were great...I really need to revist them!)

This was our second trip to Emery (as we had completed the Emery's Escape earlier in the week) and again really enjoyed this park.

The cache was in a really great locale. It's always fun finding stuff you didn't know about in the middle of the woods. haha. Also, my caching bud Chicky fell down a hill getting to the cache...haha. Her butt was all muddy. Kodak moment if I ever saw one... :D

Thanks again for this cache! TNLNSL.

We're beginners, so we needed help TWICE! We found the monument and finally figured out the math, then needed to learn how to use a compass to find the first leg.

Then we got to the final destination--my husband says it was an incinerator for the park's trash--and couldn't find the cache. I'm so ashamed! But finally today we got it--traded a Mexican coin for earrings.

Thanks for showing us a very cool part of a park that's VERY close to home!

Hmm. That's an interesting story about Instant Cool Guy. I didn't notice it at the "other" website. It still took forever to get caches in this park though! Didn't realize I needed a compass for the 2 SF caches in the park, but got through this one with a cheapie little carabiner compass I had on me, and did the micro in the park not listed here. I'll likely save the other SF one for a time of the year when my GPS isn't reading +/- 1,000 ft. (it seemed that bad). Very muddy with this crappy summer we're having, but an excellent cache all around. I left a carabiner, took a sponge and CITO kit. Thanks Strikeforce_Sunset

This was our first Father-Son cache find with our new Magellan Meridian Gold GPS (bought at BJ's). We enjoyed the clue after the first leg, and then found the cache in good shape on the second leg. My son was delighted at all the goodies - we left several nice plastic soldiers and took the plastic car. It was a great evening and we had a good time together.

Note: I placed this cache last July, but never finished it. It was found already by Instant Cool Guy in November. He was looking for a place to hide his own cache and happened to find this one. CONGRADS on the find FTFBA :) (First To Find Before Approval) SF1
