I used to play in this area as a kid and always loved this particular spot. It is a short hike in from the parking log along a flat and well maintained trail.

I believe the parking lot closes at dusk, or sometime shortly afterward. Don't get locked in! There is space for a couple of cars just outside the parking area if you're here later.

I had originally planned on hiding this in the nearby tunnel but there were no good spot combined with a proximity issue with the RR tracks.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no reason to go anywhere near the tracks! That should be obvious when you get there!

I hope you enjoy my first cache. Please let me know how the coordinates are.

Very nice area for a cache. Enjoyed the view and 'falls'. Parked at an alternate area which may have been closer to the cache, but is not recomended. The terrain was a little difficult and I was probably trespassing. Got within feet of the cache but quit due to the terrain in the area and having only my 2 year old son with me. He did have a great time at the park near where I parked. I wil be back, and will succeed.

You people are crazy!! This sort of thing would NEVER happen in Buffalo! Glad to see yet another Garmin vs. Magellan success story though.

Luck was not with me this morning. I had seen this as well last night but didn't feel like going, as I had plans on getting up early to do "The River, the trails, the rails" in the morning. This morning I thought about heading up to do this, but didn't think I'd have time to fit it and "River" in before going to Buffalo for turkey day.

After enjoying the long walk on "River", I was about 0.7 miles from my car when a new cache came out nearby. I raced back to my car and drove over, only to have been beaten by FishyKid by about 30 seconds.

Not having my FTF fix, I then drove quickly up north as I had finished River quicker than I thought and had a little bit of time to spare (I didn't.)

Saw the peppermobile in the lot, so I knew my FTF chances were slim. Thought for sure Wheely would have been here last night or early in the morning anyway.

Raced in and saw the peppermills still walking. But as has happened a couple times in recent memory, they got to the cache first as I thought it be more "over there".

It was more of a stumble than going down. And my pants were already muddy before I started!

I really enjoy this park. I was here over the summer looking for a pre-find for the Magellan contest, but it turned out it wasn't even close to this park.

Saw this come up last night but decided to wait til this morning. Nothing like caching on a holiday! Pulled into the lot and noticed fresh car tracks there, but no car. Uh oh, hopefully someone out walking their dog. Walking to the area we didn't see anyone. As we were just about 300 ft away, we could hear something and turned around, it was Chilehead! The race was on, as most know, that Chile guy can move. It was neck and neck the rest of the way. Luckily once again, Chile's magellan was on our side and he overshot the cache and ended up slipping on the snow covered path and went down. Altho it was funny to see, we still had a cache to find. FTF victory was ours! And its always sweeter when a muddy Chile is just a step or two away. Coords right on (if you have a Garmin!). Nice creek and falls nearby. Great cache location for your 1st. Thanks!
