This cache is located in the Pawling Nature Preserve in Pawling, New York. There are several trailheads, but the main parking is located on Quaker Lake Rd. at N41*36.439 W073*33.494. This road is mostly dirt and can be very rough, so keep this in mind especially when there has been precipitation. The Preserve is open from sunrise to sunset.
This cache is a regular cache with a twist for the hide. It isn’t a difficult find, just a little bit of a different cammoflage. The cache itself is a decon container so there is only room for small trades. I’d like to see the trades be geocoins or pins mostly. The trails for the Preserve are very well marked and trail maps can be had at the kiosk at the Yellow trailhead from the parking lot on Quaker Lake Rd. The Appalachian Trail also runs through here. Together with the other trails, there are miles of hiking to be found here. Many of the trails cross streams and wetlands, but they should be easy to circumnavigate as there are a few bridges and walkways to assist you.
This cache is off the Red trail. Stay on the trail until you are at a stream crossing that is approximately 175’ from the cache. At this point, you will want to bushwhack uphill to a grouping of evergreen trees. Here is where you start your search. Please be careful when retrieving and replacing the cache. You will understand why when you find it. Please replace it as you find it. I hope you enjoy your hike and the beautiful preserve. Be sure to check out “Hudson’s Folly” if you haven’t already, as this is one of the oldest caches in the area and the reason I found these trails in the first place.
