How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Based on a tip by Rich…[ H. Wolves ] about why not converting my letterbox up here into a hybrid Geo-Box…? And, as no one else has “glommed” this most scenic spot and the previous Geocache at this location, Zoar Overlook, has been retired, thus, why not lead new folks up to this great view point ? Bring camera.
Note: Its best not to camp at this campground..as the rangers here are very unfriendly to geo-cachers !!!! See and read logs for geo jamboree 8 GC233TD for detailed comments on this subject.
This is a non typical [ early Zurcher ? ] cache…therefor non-complicated, easy straight forward easy to do cache- letterbox combo. The hardest part may be the climb up here, but well worth it.
Make sure to obtain a trails map at kiosk on way in, or, as a minimum, study trails map posted there and / or download one. Stay on marked trails all the way up to the top, as, bushwacking here not advisable!
If lazy or new at this or no GPS….use / find info for Kettletown LBNA # 7970 letterbox listed under New Haven county and follow those instructions.

Also, less experienced cachers may wish to have a copy handy for reference or hint to find cache-box, a medium sized Tupperware container.
While up here, be sure not to miss other overlook close by, [ check map ] even a bit better as less obstructed view, less trees....backtrack on trail a bit and take trail towards the north-west.
Those geo-cachers having previously physically logged this box [ I am gonna check! ]….are naturally entitled to a “ freebie “ that is, a quick, cheap, easy way to get credit for another groundspeak cache log, even if it’s much later after the fact, but hurry, hafta beat WAL to get: first to log !!!
Misc. history about this cache-box
The original letterbox was placed in march 02 above Prydden Falls on other side of the river, seldom visited became orphaned and later adopted by myself and transferred to this site. Original letterbox name was: Mistaken Identity….as , original owner not aware, Kettletown is on THIS side of the river. Examine neat rubberstamp.
