The cache is located near the Prallsville Mills historic site just off Route 29. The site is adjacent to beautiful Wickecheoke Creek and the D & R Canal and is home to many historic buildings. The buildings and structures date from ca. 1790 to the early twentieth century and include a 1790 linseed oil mill, a 1877 gristmill, a 1850 sawmill, a 1900 grain silo, a 1874 railroad trestle, a 1834 canal and several secondary outbuildings. More information on the site is also available through the Delaware River Mill Society.
You can park in the lot by Prallsville Mills or in the nearby parking used for fishing access. This cache should be a little more difficult than some of my other caches. Use stealth in looking for the cache as this area is very popular with hikers and bikers, especially when the weather is nice.
The cache is the sixth in the series to extend the line of caches located along the D & R Canal State Park hiking trail which follows the abandoned railroad tracks. I hope you enjoy your travels along the D & R Canal. Views of the Delaware River are available all along the way. Good hunting! Afterwards, in Stockton there are several shops and eating establishments that you could also visit.
