Geocache Description:

This is a night cache on an ATV trail across the street from Cathedral Pines Campground in Eustis. Take a flashlight and follow the firetacks from the starting coords (given).

Remember the song, "Long Black Veil"? It starts "Ten years ago on a cold, dark night, someone was killed 'neath the town hall light. There were few at the scene but they all agreed that the slayer that ran looked a lot like me". Another stanza goes "Sometimes late at night, when the cold wind moans, she visits my grave and she cries o'er my bones". And the chorus goes "She walks these hills in a long black veil, visits my grave while the night winds wail". A nice mournful song to hum while you search for this cache on a cold, dark, night and listen to the cold winds moan....

The ATV trail may have puddles and roots to fall over. Then there is a short bushwack into the woods, over fallen trees etc. Watch your step, not just the tacks!
