This cache is an easy find in a unique area, the gentleman that owns this piece of property allows art students from the local college to place pieces here for display that would otherwise be destroyed, be sure to take the time to walk all the pathways and enjoy the unique sculptures located here. Plan to spend some extra time on this one as it is well worth your time to sit and "chat" with the owner "Bill Castle" The cache is located on South Rd in the hamlet of Phillips Creek. To get to South Rd head North on North Rd ( don't ask me I didn't name the roads!!) The area is well marked and easy to spot.
Please to sure to Cache in and Trash out as this is private property and this cache is placed by permission of the owner.

I took my wife here today with me because we wanted to take a Sunday drive and I said "Let's go see Pollywogg Holler". So off we went for a nice Sunday afternoon drive. This wasn't hard to find and as we got closer I was amazed at how many cars were parked along the road. This is such a removed area and you don't see much for a couple of miles and then there are all these cars. I parked a ways past the little parking lot and picked up a trail that went off to the left, this one seemed to take me away from the cache so I told Sandy that we should back track and take a trail we saw as we entered the area. Off in the distance we could hear music and really good music at that. Rounding a bend in the woods we ran onto a fellow doing something of which we were not sure of , (Maybe relieving himself), and when we approached he greeted us and we asked about the music. I was surprised to find out that practically every Sunday afternoon, music is performed and for a small cover fee you could eat some pizza and have some pop and listen to the music. This place is Killer!, I definitely will be back sometime in the Fall to take in more of this place and experience a Sunday afternoon, Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I, or should I say my wife, located the cache and I TNLN and signed the log. Thanks Brogan, once again you have led me to another interesting and beautiful place here in Western new York State. - Paleoman52-

Cache Log:
So after two weeks of 'could I's' and 'can I's', Chicky and I decided to head out to the Holla! today for the "big 5 - dubba - O". We had chosen the Holla! for a few reasons...1 - Despite some of the awfully strange things that come out of his mouth, Brogan is cacher that I have always admired and feel it's more an honor to be a part of his caches then perhaps the other way around. And, 2 - I have ALWAYS watched this cache from afar and thought it would be a really special opportunity to not only find a cache, but be able to spend it with those individuals to whom have made this sport so infinitely enjoyable for me. When it's all said and done, the number aren't the reason I do what I do, it's the people and the places I have come to know and appreciate.

So...with all this said...I almost didn't make it!!! Haha.

After making record time from Arcade to West Almond, I accidentally took a wrong turn, and ended up going the wrong way in the opposite direction of the cache. So after a ahem*illegal*ahem u-turn on rt. 86...and stroking Chicky's ego (because I should probably trust her directional instincts more then I do...haha), we got on the right course and made our way to the Holla!

After arriving, we made off towards the cache, surprised to see that we were the first cachers today to make it...of course you wouldn't know that because I later learned that I accidentally put yesterdays date...doh! So, after re-hiding the cache, Chicky and I thought it would be fun to hide in the bushes and scare the living-begeezus out of whomever was hot on our heels.

So after spending several minutes in the bushes playing super-spy, we decided maybe we were hearing things and emerged, only to have Nature Noggins catch us near the cache sight. So from there we watched them find the cache, and also were rewarded with TWO awesome bottles of NN's own White Zinfandel (with Szuchie #500 labels on them! - Yesss!!!). So after a couple of photo ops, and a brief session of "lets find some acorns and pine cones to throw at the next finders", we all headed over to the Holla!

Thanks Brogan for #499 (and for realizing I said something nice about you so that way you won't delete all my cache logs....hahahaha ).

The day at Pollywogg was fantastic! What a unique place! The company, great as always. Had a lot of laughs..congrats to Dave on his milestone.

The ride home, however, has left me traumatized...took 6 hours, mostly under 30 miles an hour!

This is certainly a unique area. We found the cache almost right away, traded a couple of items, then spent a while walking the trails. The artwork is amazing, and this gives it a new lease on life. We enjoyed a perfect day, and left there with some new experiences to remember. Thanks for bringing us to this area through geocaching.

Did this one in the pouring rain, so our walk through was quick. Thanks for getting us to this interesting area.

Wow! What an awesome place! Finding the cache is only half the fun... I found this cache by night but I wish I could have seem the area by daylight. The sculptures looked amazing even in the dark. Brogan and I actually wanted to get a pizza at Pollywogg Holler but oddly enough, the restaurant was closed today. Brogan gave me a tour of this wonderful jewel of a place where it seems possible to forget about the rest of the world. I know I will come back soon to enjoy it fully. Thanks for placing a cache there! I took the travel bug and left my footprints in the snow.

he wife and I decided to start the new year out with a cache or two. It
was a feezing rain today but when there is caching to be done, you have
to press on. We walked through the paths at polly wogg holler and there
are some very interesting things to catch the eye. It would be even more
interesting when the snow is gone.We found the cache with no problems
after we walked the scenic paths.We logged in and took/left nothing.We
took picture #26 Thanks for the hide!

1st of 3 finds today, 29 Nov 02 Found at 1:20 PM
My daughter Missy was here for a week from Virginia and it ended up being the coldest and windiest day of the week to take her on her 1st caching experience. So I took a break from hunting (hadnt done a cache since the Letchworth picnic), she dressed up real warm and off we went. She picked up on how to use the GPS real quick and found this one without much problem. Took picture #26 of ourselves with cache camera, signed log and took/left nothing. Then we took off to explore the rest of the place a bit. As luck would have it we found Bill at the main building in back. He was just starting a fire and invited us in for a chat and showed us around. Very fascinating place he has here. Thanks Brogan for a neat caching experience.

Well Brogan, I think to say, as you did in your description, this is a “unique area” is truly an understatement. We met Bill on the way in; he invited us to check out the accommodations as we hit it at a good time with no guests. What a place! I hope other cachers are as fortunate and will be able to see this very special place. I would recommend that future cachers visit the Pollywog holler web site before they go to get a flavor of what the place is all about. We found the cache no problem, pleased to be first to sign the logbook. Thank you for bringing us to this more than unique place.
