Located at a 700 feet above sea level, this cache takes you to the first of several scenic outlooks on a circle of the Hubbard / Perkins conservation area adjacent to Fahnestock park. Some parts of this trail are steep, rocky and slippery. Please be aware that this is both tick and bear country.
You're looking for a lock-n-lock (was originally an ammo can) and, at first, you're going to think this cache is a walk in the park. In fact, as you approach the little cute bridge and walk along the stream, you'd be spot on. However, you'll soon realise that not only are you not getting any closer to the cache, but when you are within 500 feet of your target, the trail will suddenly go seriously (cough) uphill (cough).
The cache is located at an excellent point to take a break on the way to Round Hill on the Blue trail as you enjoy the view. As the cache is within 20 feet of the trail, please resist any and all temptation to bushwhack and keep to the marked trails.
The initial contents of the cache included some first aid supplies, tape measure, USB cord, calculator keyring, hand-warmers, some batteries (please take only what you need) and, of course, various Things Of Pooh. The FTF prize is the ubiquitous Winnie The Pooh Paperback.
Now, seeing as you are here, you might as well continue on your way to Round Hill. If that's where you've come from, then you're almost home.
This cache has NYS parks' permit 03-07
Please note that the cache was relocated in May 2013
