There is a fee if you want to visit the historic sites, but you can hike the self-guided trails for free.

I enquired about the sign that said bow hunting was allowed in the area from October to December, but was assured that the areas of the hiking trails were off limits to the hunters. You may wish to wear bright coloured clothing if hiking at that time just to be sure.

Maps are queued for generation.

Unfortunately, geocaching is no longer allowed on this State Historic site, therefore this cache is being pulled and archived.

Located along the trails at the Ganondagan State Historic Site. Parking is available at N42º 57.685 W077º 24.787 (near the Visitor Center). This will be a long and somewhat strenuous hike through a hilly woodland area along well established trails. It is about 2 miles return, so be sure to take plenty of water and bug spray with you during the summer months. Sorry, no cache and dash route that I am aware of. The cache box is a standard green ammo can with an assortment of items for trading.

You can pick up trail maps in the Visitor’s Center. This cache is named in honour of the poor woman I met on the trails who shouted to me from about 1000 feet away across an open meadow “How Do You Get Out of Here?”

Historical Significance of Ganondagan:
Ganondagan State Historic Site is the location of a major seventeenth-century Seneca town and its palisaded granary. The town and its associated burial grounds on Boughton Hill were designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964. Fort Hill, the site of the granary, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966 because it was part of the French campaign of destruction in 1687. The Marquis de Denonville, Governor General of New France, led an army from Canada against the Seneca in July, 1687. It was an effort to annihilate the Seneca and eliminate them as competitors in the international fur trade.

Historians emphasize the battle between the French and the Seneca, which took place near Ganondagan over three hundred years ago. The Seneca recall a much earlier time period, when the man referred to as the Peacemaker journeyed to their territory and met a woman known as the Mother of Nations. The Seneca refer to Ganondagan as the Town of Peace and revere and protect the burial site of the Mother of Nations here.

We went caching with seek2find3, and they found it first. First time here and will return to let the sights soak in better.
I was a little nervous when we saw the cache out in the open, so we re-hid it in the base of a nearby tree. Hope it was close to its original spot!

Thanks for the great hike!

2nd of 8 finds today Found at 10:25AM
Nice little park, great place for a cache. Read all the sings, very interesting. Saw buck on the way in, just starting to get his antlers. Found cache without any problem, coords were real close. Loved the nice little falls. Signed log, took/left nothing. Took a different fork in the trail on the way out so I could read more of the signs. Thanks Junglehair for the nice hide.

My first time here. It was a nice walk. Lots of history. I liked reading the plaques.

Found it at 9 AM today. Of course we started on the wrong path - but eventually got to the cache. Great area and hiding spot. Took Kachin Keychain Catcher and traded a Pete's dragon for a witch.

When I returned home from a business trip I was surprised to see the cache still had not been found. So I went and found it late this afternoon. Very nice area and the suroundings once you get to the cache are well worth your walk no matter which direction you approach from.

Yelled the first Huckle Buckle Beanstalk, dropped off the first TB and entered the first log.

Junglehair, thanks for all the fun hides this week.
