Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

THE 1ST STAGE OF THE CACHE IS NOT AT THE ABOVE COORDINATES !!

When the cache was placed, the coordinates above took you to a sign at one end of the trail. Due to land development in the area, this sign was removed and not replaced.

This is a 3-part multicache which follows a portion of the route of the Pacific Coast Coal Mines railroad.

As the information on the sign was significant to the area's history and the reason we placed the cache, we have included a photo of the sign for cachers to use. Using the information on the photos, complete the simple equations below. These will take you to a point of interest where the second stage of the cache is located. The coordinates at this stage will direct you to the location of the cache itself, hidden within a few feet of the trail.

Cache is a traditional lock'n'lock in a black garbage bag.

STAGE 2 LOCATION:

Lat = 49 degrees, 06.X minutes
Long = 123 degrees, 51.Y minutes

2X + 623 = Year PCCM started using the rail line
Y = (# of men drowned + 5) x 12

Enjoy this link to local history!
