Geocache Description:

Finger puppets, Children's toys or a rhino have NOTHING to do with GC111. The overall difficulty 3.5 /> Terrain rating 3.5
Elevation at cache 755'
Elevation at closest parking 148' distance .44 mi. They DO NOT allow pets, other than horses. Owner is over 60 and had heart bypass and strokes, so anyone in average shape can walk it.
Finger puppets or any other Children's toys are not the cache.

This cache is located in south Napa County California. If you find an object not located with the log book, you have NOT found the cache. Finger puppets or any other toys are not the cache.

The cache can be found following the trail system, inside of Skyline Park. Please stay on the trails. Here is what a park employee emailed me. "We cannot have folks wandering all over the Park." "Anyone crossing the rock wall is trespassing onto private property." I.E. They have recently given away some of the park land. This has changed the property lines and now the cache is 6" outside of "NEW" park boundry. You DO NOT need to cross the property line to find the cache. The park employees don't like Geocaching or anyone else "enjoying" the park. Have a nice walk and keep it to yourself about why you are there. I do hope that you find everyone else in the Napa Valley much more friendly, enough said.

There is approx. a .44 mile and 600' elevation change involved to reach the cache site. Bring a camera and lunch. Views of the entire Napa Valley on the way to site. North to Mt St. Helena. West to Marin County. South is a view of the entire San Francisco bay including several of the bay bridges. At site there were 80+ wild turkeys and 8 deer.

Hint: At the coordinates you will see a 90 degree "corner" in the rock wall. Trail is 100' from the intersection with Bay Area Ridge Trail.
They DO NOT allow pets. They charge to enter park
