Deep Pine Forest Cache

I always wanted to take people to this place to show them some of the big pine trees. I put a geocache there. This is located in the Erwin Game Management area that has about 30 miles of trails – some of which are easy to walk and some are extremely steep cuts made for firebreaks. There are also 6 miles of roads that are closed to traffic most or all of the year. You can walk on roads and trails to within 12 yards of this cache. By the shortest route it is about 1.5 miles from the parking lot at N42° 10.283' W77° 10.973'. There are many different road and trail combinations that will get you there – you will come to several intersections and will have to make a choice at each one. All of the trails you need to take are fairly easy to walk – even if you take a different route – it shouldn’t get too bad. There are several fallen trees across several of the trails, which you will have to step around, but all of the trails should be visible. There is a maze of trails so you might take a loop. You can try bushwhacking to the site, but it is not necessary.

There is a very broken down log bridge on the trail near the cache. From the NE corner of the bridge, go NW 12 yards. The cache is a Rubbermaid container behind a stump, under a couple of boards.

This cache is less than a mile walk from the Erwin Beaver Pond Cache – if you can find your way through the maze of trails. (You need to walk along the west side of the pond. If you start at the Beaver Pond cache, the trailhead at the SW edge of the lake is hard to see. – If you start at the Deep Pine Forest cache, you will have trails that will lead you down to the pond.) It is muddy by the pond.

Now this one really has me stumped???
I looked for about 45 minutes and still no luck. I am certain I was in the right area but nothing to be found. Has anyone else had any luck with this one lately?

My sats were dancing a bit but I gave the area a good looking over.
I'll have to retry on my next trip out this way.

Went in with NonnyBee & HiJack before they got their names. BalloonPilot, ChickenLips, WW Gobstopper, Kurt and Donette all headed in for the 3 local caches here. I was exciting to see the interest of the newbees. These were fine caches and helped hook 2 more cachers into the sport. Took nothing and left only my log in the book.

We went on a cache excursion with some friends of ours for the very first time. After receiving a brief synopsis of what to do and expect, we started looking for the Deep Pine Forest Cache by Powers. It was a beautiful walk through the woods and exciting to find the cache. We did not sign the book since they did. It was an exciting event for us and we are starting to think very seriously about doing this by ourselves.

Our second cache of the day. We had three caches to do in this general area and had fun with all of them. The newbies even seem to be liking this a bit!! This is a very nice area and a great hiking spot. We took the stress relief ball and left some silly putty. Thanks for a nice way to spend our morning.

3rd of 6 finds today. Found 2:50 PM.
Real nice woods for a hike. Was beginning to wonder where the pines were till I got close to the cache. All hardwoods till there. What a pleasent aroma. Found the cache pretty quick. Logged in, took/left nothing. Now on to do Erwin Beaver Pond Cache.

We found this one at 5:45pm. Wasn't too hard to find just a lot of hiking. The bugs were killer! Great trails though! We normally carry a note pad with us, but this time we didn't. I wished we had, this cache really needs a log book. We took the rubber stamp and Canadian paper money. We left a Witch and a Road Runner stress ball.

Mrmeasure and the Gofer (wife) made this the second find of the day. Didn't have a trail map, so bushwacked about .3 miles till we hit a trail ultimately arriving at the so-called bridge. Cache was not in good shape. No log book. We used a piece of paper left by a previous finder for our log. Not much in the container, probably a result of being spread around. Took nothing, and left a spot clock, a golf ball from the Klipnocky Forest cache and a numbers puzzle from Hobo's Hideaway. The next hunter should take a log book. Now on to the Hatfield and McCoy navicache. Mr and Mrs Measure
