You can hike the trail or elect to bring a water craft and use the boat ramp to float up to the geocache's location. It's a 2+ mile hike to the ammo can or it's 1.7 river miles up the Chattahoochee. The terrain rating is 4 because the walking bridges over the creeks are not in place. Once they are installed, the terrain will be a 2. The Geocache is located about 130 feet off the trail.
This is a brand new state park, so the road to the park entrance may not be updated in your map set. Navigate to "E1" (in the additional waypoints below) to find the entrance to Chattahoochee Bend State Park.
Once you have paid your $5 entrance fee, navigate your way to the trail head coordinates, ("TH" posted in the additional waypoint section). This area of the park has parking, a boat ramp, picnic shelters and the trail head where you start your journey for this geocache.
*This geocache has a special stamp to use on your passport. If you are not
using a passport with "Chattahoochee Bend State Park" in the grid, you will use this stamp in one of the blank boxes. The blank boxes are located on the right hand side on the bottom row of the grid. This stamp counts towards one of the 40 State Parks you need to stamp on your passport to get a gold coin.
This trail was build by volunteers. Along with many other features to be completed in this new park trails are constantly being created and maintained. If you would like to help with the trails become Friends of Chattahoochee Bend State Park
Your normal precautions for hiking in the woods apply. You'll need bug spray, boots, and water to drink along your journey. Please remember to practice "Leave no Trace."
