Located in Letchworth State Park near the Perry entrance, this cache uses part of one of the parks longer hiking trails that skirts the vanished village of Gibsonville and extends along the Silver Lake outlet down to the Genesee River. This area is often driven by and ignored but there is much to see. For more information about the park in general, visit “www.letchworthpark.com” or call the visitor center (716) 493-3600.

This, being my second cache hide, was planned with a special surprise that adds to the level of difficulty. The saving grace is that the terrain is very easy and in fact part of the trail is mowed. Aside from the cache there is much to find; three small falls, a large falls with a double drop, the stone remains of building foundations, a standing stone chimney, a well and other evidence of a community that once was. Not to the scale of the main Genesee gorge the Silver Lake outlet is a gorge with its own personality. All this is packed within a half-mile walk.

The cache is a 50 cal ammo box with a logbook and goodies to exchange. The goodies are great but the adventure of the hunt and the sites along the way are the real treasure.

Parking is somewhat provided with ample wide gravel shoulders and to see three to four cars there is normal. In the early spring Letchworth State Park has a $5 toll to enter the park on weekends from 8AM to 6PM. All other times - No Toll. Tolls are charged on weekdays from late May to early November. In the winter, when there is snow or ice on the ground, this area of the park may be closed to the public. Again this is one for the camera bug.
