How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
You will need a boat of some sort to score this cache (we used a canoe) It is on a small island in Chemo Pond; which is why it has a 4 terrain rating. It can be accessed via the public boat launch for Chemo Pond (but you do have to pay); roughly these coords: N44'49.597/W68'35.628
There is a free way to the lake that I know of (it's how I get in) but you need a high clearanced vehicle to get it. You go in via Leonards Mill and take Geovernment road to these co-ords: N44.50.056 / W068.35.924. There is a small, rocky road that will lead you to the edge of the lake. I have to put my Toyota Tacoma in 4 wheel drive to get back up this road.
Once in the water, head to these coords for an easy place to beach your canoe or kayak: N44'50.028/W68'35.478 - the cache is nearby... The cache is a round tupperware container painted in camo.
I do not know if this place is good for a motor boat, as I do not own one.
*Note on this cache*
My dog Kenna and I ended up here on the shoreline one day while mountain biking through UMaine's Experimental Forest. We scored a find at Leonard Mills and decided to continue on and see what the "pond" was. 4 1/2 miles later we stumbled onto this pond (more like a lake) and thought that the island would be a great place to hide a cache.
So a few days later with my wife in tow, we canoed out to the island and placed the cache. I hope that you enjoy the area and there is a "medal" for the FTF. Good Luck!
