Geocache Description:

I grew up near this park. We used to spend our afternoons playing in the woods. There used to be a bridge in the middle of the forest and that is where I was going to place the cache. But since it is now gone, I decided to place the cache nearby. Either way, you can't see the hiding place from the trail.

My E Trex was reading 20-25 feet accuracy when I marked the spot.

I ask that those of you who seek this cache please be respectful of the the park rules. Please park in the appropriate areas in the north end of the park and stay on the trails until you get close. This will save you from the many sticker bushes. Polk County has a policy for geocahing. Please go to the Polk County Conservation web site to review: (visit link)
