Located just off the hilltop of Crescent Hill Trail (Horizon Hill Parking area) off Garnsey Road, Perinton. Should be easy to find.

This cache is a retired 50 cal. ammo box, black w/ white lettering. The cache contains the usual stuff. A single use camera to take a self portrait and return it to cache. A log book to fill out w/ your name, comments, etc. and assorted trinkets of which you can choose one to take and replace w/ another. You can easily get to it on foot w/ your family.(Just watch for poison ivy) **Note: 1/29/02 There was a problem with the cache being too visible since Fall so I have changed the coordinates to reflect a new location.

We searched and searched but couldn't get through the thick overgrowth. We will try again in late fall, when the growth has thinned out.

Always nice to find an oldy! Recently visited before us, too, but probably only logged on the other service.

Took us a while as GPS was bouncing around. Had been to a Greyhound Info Meeting. Left Greyhound pin. Beautiful day in the 50's...with nice view.

Took by bike into the trails to do this one. It wasn't to bad until I had to get off the trail and walk to the cache. It took me some time to find it. The GPS was jumping all around. I did find it. I had to read the listing 3 times. It was thick as heck in here!! Oh and I realized the warning about the poison ivy the third time I read it when I was like 10 feet away from the cache! Hope I don't get any rashes! Just a note to the hiders, you may want to increase the difficulty by 1 1/2. 2.5 is whart I thought it should be. Traded nothing. My sidekick was here in spirit today.

Several people using the trail this morning. Walked in on the blue trail and out on the orange trail. Since the day was bright and clear, the view from the top was superb. Took Digit, the travel bug. On the way out meet Manny and his dog, Chance, who Manny rescued from the Lollipop Farm. Manny noticed my GPS and said that as a scoutmaster he was interested in having his scouts use one. We had a congenial chat about geocaching.

The camera has been removed to be developed. We will try to have the pictures at the June Cachers gathering and at the Fall Letchworth gathering.

Geocaching with Harburu and Sunflower. This was a very nice area for a walk. Enjoyed the hills. The cache was easy to find, with no foliage to hide it.

Found it at 4:35 pm. This is our second attempt. The first time there were people around who didn't seem to be in a hurry to leave. Again tonight there were people around so we continued on the trail. When we came back they were gone and we headed straight for the cache. Took nothing, left nothing.

I had to move around after a long day of jury duty, so I headed out here to see if I could find this one and get a bit of excercise. Found the trail just fine and headed up, scaring a bunny along the way. Coords were right on and I had no trouble with this one. Joy! The travel bug was still there so I nabbed it, and took a grow-a-frog as well. Left the cowboy earrings and a few WG bills. A nice walk after sitting around all day!

Went here in hopes of adding to the Keychain Kacher, but alas, someone beat us to it this morning! Oh well, maybe we'll catch up to it soon! Excellent view and beautiful trail system - the birds were singing, the crickets chirping and the breeze whistling in the trees!! Sunny hot day - the bench came in handy. Thanks for a fun hunt!!

Our first find!!!

Did way too much bushwacking instead of trusting the trail but we eventually got our bearings straight. We decided to follow the clues backwards and were rewarded by the nice view of the city. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon with a few puffy clouds.
6 year old GPS that I found on ebay got us on the mark. We are getting better at reading it. Dont have time to crunch pics today but will have them in the future.

Any chance someone could link this cache to some caches moving eastward?

CacheAcrossAmerica is a project whose goal is to link Geocaches from the Pacific Coast eastward to the Atlantic Coast in one continuous chain. The only requirement is that each cache in the chain must be within 100 miles of the cache it is linked. In order to link a cache or caches you have found or hidden you must have personally visited the cache at the end of an existing which you have if you've visited this one.

Visit: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CacheAcrossAmerica/ for additional info. I am hoping that the northern Chain beats the one coming up from NC/SC to link up to the chain moving east from CA-Nevada-Utah.

Thanks for your help.

I found it on my second trip. I got a late start on my first try, and as I walked around where my etrex said it was, I found nothing. But dusk set in quickly to where I wouldn't have seen if it was right in front of me, so I gave up that night. I tried again tonight with a little earlier start, and got up there with more light, and managed to find it. According to my etrex it was about 25 feet uphill from ground zero. I am getting a Magellan 315 soon (it was shipped today). It has averaging, and may do better in the woods than my etrex. I took a small level, and left a movie database cdrom.

Yes...I am the son-in-law. I went and found this with Caron today. Weather at the time was very sunny but a tad on the windy side. I had a great time even though Caron spotted cache first.
I left a Mystery Theatre cd that I made a copy of from the Cemetery Cache that GPSFool made. Great cd set! I also left two wheres George dollars to be logged. I took the Chicago m & M chic thingy and will place it in another cache in my hunts. signed logbook and took a picture of self with camera from cache.

PS...Gps I had worked too good! My mother-In-Law found her way back to the car =(

M& M Imposter
Yup...she was here and I took her! You want her? come find her! She will be out and about in another cache very soon!

News Flash! Road Kill sneaks back from Chicago to raid two new local caches. Huckle Buckle Bean Stalk! HeHeHe. Road Kill is grinning. Excellent location. After about 10 minutes of walking by it, past it and over it 3 or 4 times I couldn't believe it was in plain site. But I wasn't out witted by the Blackwatch Clan after all. I took a beany lobster thing and won't say what I left. After I found the cache - I found the knee deep poison ivy patch and a scenic bench. There was a lot of overcast but I clicked off a picture anyway. To anyone living in Rochester - you might be able to see your house from here.
