Geocache Description:


Of all the FSR's in the province, Hunter - Lorenzetta FSR is dearest to my heart because it's right across the highway from where I grew up. I have many fond memories of going up this road with my Dad to find the perfect Christmas tree or just for fun. Once you reach the top, you are treated to a spectacular view of Laidlaw, the Fraser River and the rest of this part of the valley. I highly recommend bringing a camera with you and feel free to post your pictures in your log entry to share your experience with everyone else.

Be aware that this is a steep road, much like other FSR's. A 4x4 vehicle is required due to loose gravel on the drive up. Also be careful and watch for large rocks in your way as part of the road is prone to rock slides.

If you plan to continue further on the FSR past the cache location, be aware that the road has been deactivated with cross-ditches. These should be fairly easy to handle with the right vehicle. The road continues about 10-15km before it comes to an end.

One other thing to note. When first turning off Laidlaw Rd. onto the FSR, you may notice a sign that says "NO ENTRY". Please be aware that this sign is meant for Bulger Pit, which is the gravel pit next door. You will also notice that the sign is physically in the gravel pit's property fence. Entry onto the FSR is open to the public.

The cache is a small camo'd lock&lock container and shouldn't be too difficult to find. Your GPSr might bounce around a bit because of the close proximity to the mountain, but common sense should dictate that the cache is NOT down any slopes or cliffs (but exercise caution when walking near them). FTF prize is an unactivated TB tag.

Cache on!
