This cache requires a watercraft of some kind to reach it's
location. There's no known trail. A canoe or kayak can be
rented at Dunn's marina on the Big Moose Rd. off Rt. 28 in
Eagle Bay. You'll need to go to the northern most point in
the north bay (antler) of Big Moose Lake. Pass north of the
island in north bay and north of the point after the island.
Take the right(not left)fork to one of the most secluded
and beautiful places you'll ever be or see.

Look for a huge split white pine tree in the shape of a 'V'
on the north shore of the bay. There's a dock next to it to
moor your craft. Great spot. The cache is nearby. Enjoy
this place. Maybe you'll see or hear some loons.

Wow - going on 3+ years and I'm the only one who searched for this one.

It would be nice if this could be listed on geocaching.com to get some more activity on it. I wonder if your home location was a problem to get it listed, as I recall you have caches in the Rochester area too which might make this out of your home area. You could always get a local cacher to be a backup maintainer if needed (that's not an offer, as I also live in Rochester!)

No logs on this one, but I was sure it had been found as it was put out so long ago and another nearby cach (Billy's Bald Spot) also had no logs but had finds in the logbook.

We were staying on Big Moose Lake about a mile away as the crow flies (about 1.5 miles by paddle). I wanted to get out all week and finally convinced my wife and son to go out for a canoe ride.

I wasn't sure if we would have time to paddle this far, but I turned up the power and made it.

Got to the dock and wouldn't you know it ... a boat was there with about 15 people partying. The cache was right there so there was no way to search w/o being seen.

Luck was with us, as as soon as we got there they started to pack up. We only had to wait a few minutes before starting the search.

We found the cache easily, and were surprised there were no logs other than the owner.

Left a chile bandana, took a japanese thingy for my son.

Thanks for the fun!
