Geocache Description:

Regular sized cache located in downtown SF and is accessible only on Tuesday-Sunday: Noon to 5:00 PM. (Days and hours subject to change without notice)

Welcome to the California Gold cache.

If you are visiting San Francisco this cache is a “must do” if you want to see San Francisco beyond its glass towers, traffic jams, and trendy shops. Once you locate the cache you will find yourself immersed in California’s past. This special place makes “the past a meaningful part of our contemporary lives.”

Since you are in the glass canyon area of the city you will find that your GPS will have difficulty finding this location. The coordinates I have provided you will get you in the vicinity. See the hint for more details.

Cache is only available at these days and hours:
Tuesday-Sunday: Noon to 5:00 PM.

No fee required to access cache.

This is probably the only safe place (so far) to leave your travel bugs in downtown San Francisco.

Parking is difficult and expensive as it is everywhere in the downtown area. I would recommend taking mass transit to this area especially on week days.

Would love to see photos of you in the 'lobby.' The 'environment' changes several times a year. :-) There usually is a table there you can sit at comfortably.
