From outside the Park, there are two parking areas;
A) Heading west from Rt.425 and Rt.18, 1.2 mi., across from W. Lake Rd. intersection, there is a one car space,( tiny yellow markers ), @ N 43*18.414 / W 078*50.221. From here you are on your own. Look for trailhead & map board in front of you.
B) West of Main Park entrance, 1/10 mi.on right, oppisite large green barn. There are spaces for several cars there, @ N43*18.435 / W078*51.240. From here head NNE towards paybooth, just past it is a green trail marker, head east to intersection, take right and goto N 43*18.671 / W 078* 50.593. You may encounter a short cut enroute. Once you arrive
at the cross trail, left takes you to the boat trailer parking area, trailhead-100yds away. To go further, you must decrypt the clues.

From inside the Park, there are also, two parking areas;
A) The "Bath House" lot, on right,( 2nd stop sign ) @ N 43*18.694 / W 078*51.010. From here follow the powerline trail SE, to cross trail and head east to end,and across the drainage ditch (no water), turn right to trailhead and map board.

I highly recommend when you come out, to bring lunch, or dinner and plan on spending some time to enjoy the beauty. There are picnic grills, a beach, "Disc (Frisbee) Golf " 18 hole par 3, playground for the kids, boats in the harbor, but, most of all, the sunsets over Lake Ontario - with a view of Toronto, Canada, on a clear evening. At the East end of the harbor are small shops, my favorite is the ice cream shop.

Today was an absolutely beautiful day for caching. I enjoyed walking around this park with Ladybug. I'm definitely going to have to come back here soon!

I accidentally deleted my notes, so I may or may not have left something in the cache, but I know I didn't take anything...

Second cache of the evening with Mr Mom and the Goo. Came from Wilson-Tuscarora #3. This one took a little searching as the co-ordinates were a bit off. Found it in the dark around 8pm. Beginning to see a little pattern here. Goo did some trading, the yoyo she got from the #3 cache for some color changing balls. Thanks for the cache.
