Geocache Description:

This is a child-friendly multi-cache that will take you on a short loop around the swamp at Pruyn Sanctuary. Much of the walk is on a raised boardwalk through the swamp, and the sanctuary has ample informative signage if you want to learn a little about the local flora and fauna.

Parking can be found at the Woodmill Road entrance (N41 11.739 W073 46.600). Follow the white trail straight ahead to the first waypoint and then loop counter-clockwise. All of the stages are located within a few feet of the trail and are meant to be easy to find with the hints in the clues. There is no need to leave the trail or boardwalk or get into the swamp.

The original first stage has been eliminated and renamed stage 0. The header coordinates reflect the new stage 1.

Stage 1 and Stage 2 each contain the same information with the coordinates for the final container.

Stage 0: I SMELL A SKUNK
- N 41 11.585
- W 73 46.673
This stage kept disappearing and has been removed. Enjoy the walk and continue to stage 1.

STAGE 1: BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE
- N 41 11.588
- W 73 46.750
The rock's BARK is better than its bite. Find the small tupperware with the coordinates for the final container. If you find a letterbox first you're on the wrong side of the trail. Look on the west side of the trail for the cache stage.

STAGE 2: WETLAND WILDLIFE
- N 41 11.554
- W 73 46.702
Don't HANG around too long looking for this clue below. If you found stage 1 you already have the coordinates for the final container, they are repeated here. This stage is on your way to the final.

FINAL: HOLE MARKS THE SPOT
- N 41 11.___________
- W 73 46.___________
Hope finding the final cache was a HOLE lot of fun.
