Geocache Description:

From the Southern entrance to Tallman Mountain State Park. An easy multi with a view of the Hudson at stage #2.

The second stage is between the bike trail and the scenic trail along the river. It is just off the scenic river trail. There is sometimes a lot of traffic in this park on a good day so beware of muggles especially at stage #1. Both stages are off the ground and safe from snow.

If you are doing the Long Path Creature Caches, please use the trails to get to them. Do not bushwack or the park will pull all caches.

The Long Path runs through this park and if you choose to explore it, you will see some interesting berms and ponds. These berms were formed in 1923 when Standard Oil planned on making an oil tank "farm". The project was never completed because of strong public opposition. There are still many oil-seepage ditches with earthen berms. When the land was acquired by the park, the ditches became woodland ponds and the berms are trails. Thank goodness Mrs. Rockefeller complained about the oil companie's plans and her husband nixed the project. FTF gets a new set of TB dog tags.

For any cachers that did Continental Drifter's archived GCJ2K4 "Look What I Found", the area will look familiar.
