Geocache Description:

At the Southern end of Wonder Lake State Park, a relatively easy 400 feet of elevation gain provides quick access to a viewpoint over I84 with pointy bits of land in the distance.

This cache is one of a series placed for a family-friendly hike in honour of the Grand Dame's redacted birthday.

Ideally, you should access this cache after coming in from the main parking to the north of the lake. Please note that the park is bounded by private property.

Please be aware that the building of a house on what was previously considered to be an easement has created some confusion regarding access from the area of the park-and-ride, and the parks department is working clarify that situation. Geocachers are strongly encouraged to approach this cache from the main parking further down Luddingtonville Road.

A series of logging roads and partially marked trails links up from here to Wonder Lake and the blazed trails to the north. Further marking of the trail system is expected to continue through mid 2007

For parking coordinates, please see the waypoints section of Barely Over The Hill

This cache has NYS Parks Geocaching permit 07-07
