For this find you need to pull out your trusty compass and give that overworked GPS a much needed break. You may want to keep your GPS handy, however, since it could be helpful in another way while on the trail.
The cache is not listed at the coordinates above! It is merely the starting point of your trek.
You can find adequate parking across the street.
During your trek you will do well to follow the paths of least resistance until the final step.
All are magnetic north bearings - no adjustments for declination are required!
Now, onto the hunt!
1) The coordinates above start you between two yellow and black markers. From here proceed down the trail for approximately 150 feet.
2) You come to a blue sign. Follow a bearing of 170 degrees. Proceed for another 400 feet.
3) You arrive at a fork in the trail marked by three trees. Follow another bearing of 170 degrees and proceed approximately 515 feet.
4) You come to a split in the trail. Follow a bearing of 120 degrees and continue for 90 feet.
5) You come to a mouthy old birch standing watch at a fork in the trail. Follow a bearing of 195 degrees and continue on your trek for .23 miles.

7) A man made structure comes into view and along with it another decision. Follow a bearing of 345 degrees and proceed for 160 feet.
