I am trying to figure out which type of caches are liked best by people. Tell us which cache you liked and why.
This will go a long ways in making and placing caches for other members. :)

I like caches that require a little brainwork but not too much trampling thru underbrush... novel presentations and clue solving...

Shorter list to tell you what I liked less than most: Gimpy & Wadham Walks.  Both NaviFritzed my eTrex GPS with tree cover & tightly surrounding hills.  Both were sidehill while trying to move & glance at my GPS, hoping it might regain signal.  I like mental challenges: I took a minute in Charlotte to figure what differences 4 distinct dedications would have on the overall results.

Road Kill grinned the broadest at "Pipeline" in Chicago by Grampa. You'll have to visit "Verda Says Hi" in Perry, NY to find out why.  I copied the style for my friends in New York.   "RattleSnake Hill" By Rocky is was very rewarding.

Road Kill has A new favorite cache.  That would be Rocky's "Hogs Back" in Letchworth State Park. Road Kill likes them tough but this one is far from tough. This caching adventure was the first time I took the time to take in the scenery before finding the cache.  All I'll say is Location, Location, Location. Put this one on your MUST DO list.

I could not agree more with RoadKill. I think of the 54 that I've found, this one is at the top of my list. Fall weather was perfect & the colors were outstanding. Just a fabulous cache outing. Took 60 great photos going from Rockys "Hogs", to Barringtons "Pennys" with a finale at RoadKills "Low & Behold". Truly a caching day for the record books. Not in number of caches found, but in the downright beauty at each one of these gems. This is what it's all about, folks.

My favorite cache was a multi-stage cache that wasn't advertised as such. The description of the cache's surroundings just didn't match the site of the posted coordinates. It was all very confusing, which made finding the first stage of the cache very difficult. We kept gravitating towards the area that matched the description, not the area pointed to by the waypoint coordinates. Only when the first stage was finally uncovered and we found out that there were other stages to search for did the description of the cache start to make sense. Very well done. The surprise and the mental click (an "ah ha" moment) as it all fell into place made it the most satisfying geocache hunt that I've been on. Unfortunately, the cache was plundered soon after, removing the possibility of others enjoying it, too.

We had 1 similar to that around here. It is also high on my list of favorites. You really didn't know that there was a second leg to the cache until you opened up the cache at the posted co-ordinates. In fact, some (hehe)folks,didn't even realize there was a second set of co-ordinates on a sheet of paper in the first cache container until after they returned home from the hunt. Said individuals (hehe) opened the cache & thought it had been plundered cuz there were no trinkets, etc. in the cache. Just a couple of pieces of paper, & who reads that stuff.

I can't say if or not this was my favorite caches to go after, but it sure ranks right up there with some of the better ones. This time of year being fall and the colors of the tree's really coming out made this a great adventure. I have never seen anything like the view from the trails we were on. The water was like glass and some of the scenes we came across beat all. Idf some of you have some time to kill I would tell you that this is not one you want to miss out on. try the longer route in and bring a camera along for the ride!

I would have to say that so far mine has been "High and Dry" which is located in a First Landing State Park right here near my home in Virginia. A park that until I went after this cache I never thought much about or really took the time to explore.
Turns out it's almost 20 miles of trails wind through some of the best scenery from Bald Cypress's cover in Spanish Moss to exceptional views of Broad Bay. The best part is this one area where you could sit near a clearing and watch a nesting pair of Bald Eagles atop a Cypress tree from about 20 yards away.

We liked the park so much I placed one of my own caches there (Oldmans Cache) and go back fairly regular now just to walk and enjoy the open air. Funny how something can be that close to home and you don't even realize it.

For those who travel (especially if you like camping) I would say this would be a great stop.
Especially now that there are caches there too! :D Edited by PC Medic on --

I have always been a big fan of the Multi waypoint Geocaches. I think it is more of a skill thing if you have to put some brain work to finding a cache instead of just following the GPS. The "graveyard Grumble" cache and the couple that "Kite wizard" placed were a few of my favorite ones. For the single waypoint Caches Gimpy and Skunk dude were always good at finding the right spots to place them, not to mention great area's for scenic value. Yardboy makes me think harder than I know how to, you can actually see smoke coming out of my ears when I go after his Caches. But thats what I like, he gets sneaky and you can always expect the unexpected.
I am placing one today in a park I never have been to, but it sure seems nice! Stay Tuned! :p

"Whole Enchilada" is a great tour of wine country in the scenic NY Finger Lake area.  If only it was listed on NaviCache!

It additionally is a multi-part brain teaser.  The cache is seldom visited for sincerely great reasons & its location remains pristine, nothing trampled, etc.

Lastly, the contents of the cache are top shelf: no junk.

:0 My favorite cache is Rocky's Rattlesnake Hill.  Roadkill and I were first to find it and we earned every treasure we took from that cache box (even though we were kind enough to trade item for item).  I still look back with pride for having found that one!  Gamma Kitt

Another one for honorable mention is: "Gnomes Lair" by BalloonPilot and ChickenLips.  The unfortunate part of this story is that I can't tell you why. I will say it's unique, and one you must earn though it's not all that difficult. Other than that you'll have to read the finder's reports.

Bug Splatter and Road Kill were grinning out loud.

:wave Ahhhhhhhhh yes, Gnomes Lair!!! What more can be said for it unless you visit it. We took pride in that one and knew that most would have some respect for it after the fact!! Seems only one person thinks I did it all wrong....but then again...most others really like it. As far as our favorite cache....That would be all of them we've been to...This is a great game and the hunt is the treasure within itself...Roadkills caches played an important part in our own cache setups because of his knack for detail. We try to adhere to these methods for our own caches and have been happy with all the comments that we have received... Balloonpilot and Chickenlips are Grinning too

That's easy...Night Stalker 1 & 2.  That was back in the day when we first started out caching and didn't have a gps.  We were relying strictly on the maps and the "little orange dot"!!  Us and fourpack came across the part 2 first, looking for a completely different cache!  We were totally going the wrong way!!  So we had to rush home to the computer and look up part 1's maps, figure that out in order to open part 2.  Needless to say, we figured it out and succeeded.  That was what got us all hooked!  :oo:

And then, that is when we met Quinn, then all &#$$ broke loose...  WE CAN'T STOP CACHING!!!!!  :p

We have to agree on Hogsback Vista.  Also liked Smokey Hollow Wallow.  We like the multicaches a lot, placed two in Sampson State Park.  Tally Ho was a nice scenic tour.  The best are the ones that take us to a new place with great scenery.

Caches that take me off the beaten path or with a spectacular view are my favorites. West Meets East & Low & Behold by Roadkill are my favrotes showing me a less seen section of me favorite park along with Gnomes Lair (and the creepy nighttime adveture we had) by Balloonpilot & Chickenlips. Whenever I see these three caching names I know it means a high quality great adventure. One of my all time favorites will always be Mouse's Tree House (look under the forum X-Files, Top this One if you want to know why). Heron Bay was a beutiful spot I never would have known existed if it weren't for caching. I also enjoy the longer walks but either single or multi is fine with me.

I agree wholeheartedly with many of the caches mentioned above.  We especially liked the Rocky caches we've done while camping in Arkport. We would never have gotten into some of those beautiful areas otherwise.  Our grandkids particularly liked the Grime's Glen creek walk in Naples.  Wear old sneakers, and pick a 90 degree day, and you'll be rewarded with some fantastic waterfalls.  This is a real challenge for your GPS unit, since the walls of the creek are sheer.  The other creek walk that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed was Shakers by JTiede. He did a lot of work digging up the history of the area, and it was fun to find the remains as we progressed toward the cache. Other favorites?  Gibsonville Doublet, Hogs Back Vista, East Meets West and Busy as a Beaver.  (I could go on and on, but it's taking away from my caching time)   :)

We are slightly partial to Rocky's - Rattlesnake, it was our first one and we got hooked. The real close second is Roadkill's - Gibsonville Boublet. This one we feel is also a must do, just for the history , scenery and views. Not to mention the hard work that went into setting up this with some interesting things along the way. Strikeforce1 & Sunset enjoyed the walk down the trails.  :grinnin

I remember driving 60 miles to do Roadkills Doublet about 1 1/2 years ago.

Stupid me had the brain turned off that day and didn't finish it.

I still need to get back out and complete the cache.   :p

My favorite cache?  Hmmmm....well, I loved Part One of Orc's Treasure.  I could do that kinda thing all day long.  Pity that Part Two just scared the living daylights outta me!  Most of the caches I remember best are the ones where some misadventure made the trip more memorable - the wrong turn in NJ last weekend that had us driving up a huge pile of clamshells (at least 30 feet tall, with killer gulls at its peak), or my seventy-four attempts to get to the last part of Pirate's Treasure, or my failure at that other site's New Jersey Easyfind #2 where I thought "eww, they couldn't possibly want me to look in THERE!" which turned into a success when I went back and got braver.  My favorite all-time walk was to the now-unavailable Tug Me, which I hope comes back soon, and Bullock's Woods is another favorite because of the walk and the wildlife.  And I still like my own Watership Down - every time I go back to check it I have to laugh at how darn cute it is.   ;)

I guess my favorite caches involve long walks over level, damp ground, with unusual animals, or else the ones where I fail in my first attempts and then triumph later on.  Any caches that make me cling to a hillside or cliff are right out of the top ten.  I'm a chicken, you know.
