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.
B) The "Boat Trailer" overflow lot, head to boat launch area it's on right, @ N 43.18.741 / W 078*50.688. There are restrooms, drinking fountain, and pop machine across "Boat Launch Rd."

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.

This is a really nice park - I've never been here before. Lady bug and I encountered lots of critters out and about. What surprised me most was the number of snakes out. It was a nice day out, but I didn't think that it *that* warm for reptiles to be moving around! Lady bug was first to grab the container...

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...

Out with the cache owner, who was on a maintenance check. Found no problem, especially in the fall, with much of the tree cover gone. TNLNSL on this one.

Some of the clues really helped...especially x. we left a travel bug here...Marty. We also left a local beer token, a key chain, a metal and a puzzle. We took kids hair kit and Halloween puzzles. This was our 1st find in the park...from here headed to #1. Thanks for nice hide.

This was the third of the series tonight. Mr Mom, the Goo and I came from the Wilson-Tuscarora #1 to this one. Found it right away (in the dark) around 8:30pm as we exactly what to look for after the other two. Did some trading and took Marty the Martian who will be travelling with us to the Letchworth picnic next weekend. Thaks for the cache and an enjoyable walk.
