How Geocaching Works
Ammo can along Raven Rock Trail in Cooper's Rock State Park.
A nice hike along a well marked trail. The distance from the parking area to the cache is 1 mile as the Raven flies. Proably a mile and a third for us ground dwellers. Raven Rock is one of the jewels of Cooper's Rock State Park. The view alone is worth the hike, now there is hidden treasure as well. Be sure to walk on out to the end of the trail.
The cache is close to the trail so no bushwacking or rock climbing is required. When the area is busy, you'll need some stealth. The trail is rocky so good boots would help.
Be advised that the area is closed at dark. Also the main road is closed and gated from around the beginning of December until April 1. When the gate is closed add 1.75 miles to the hike to the cache. Be watchful for snakes in this area. Poker sticks are better than hands.
Recently folks have been finding a Tupperware container, with rubber stamps, for letterbox players while searching for the cache. That is not the cache. The cache is an ammo can. (Don't accept any substitutes for good trinket swapping :-) )
