This cache in not for the novice woodsman. It's a 6 mile round trip winter snowshoe trek. I've never been there in the summer but there are beaver ponds and sizable streams to cross and can be pretty wet. This can only be done in deep winter. Even then it can be dangersous. If you fall in it's a long way out. I've been there on both backcountry skis and snowshoes. Skis are easier if conditions are right and you know what your doing. If conditions are not right you can get pretty beat up (I've left some blood up there). Snowshoes are much safer but also much more work. After you've been there you can decide it you would try it in the summer. I plan to go in this summer. As I mentioned before, the snowmobile roads will get you a lot closer.

Parking is available just east of Woodford State park on Rt 9 in Woodford, Vermont. There is a woodroad on the west end of this parking lot that heads north. You can take it to a powerline. This road is groomed by a snowmobile club and you must watch out for them. Bushwack from the powerline. There are other roads in the area that will get you closer to the cache but you will encounter quite a few snowmobiles on a weekend. I prefer to stay off them.

The cache site will be a surprise and will prompt you to ask questions, probabole the same questions I have. It is plainly visible as you approach it and the cache itself in inside ( I hope: read on). On our last visit we noticed that beavers had incorporated it into their dam. Make sure you have solid ice before approaching it. remember, It's a long way out with frozen feet.
