Geocache Description:

This cache is located at the End of Highway 11 (Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway) near the South Carolina - Georgia state line (OR the START if you want to think of it that way).

.....To find this cache, take Exit 1 off of I-85 in South Carolina, just above the S.C. - Ga. state line. NOTE: IF COMING NORTH ON 85, take the exit for Walhalla & the Welcome center or you will miss Hwy 11!! Turn right if coming from Georgia, or left over the bridge if going toward Georgia. You will see the sign that states "ROAD ENDS" This is the terminus of SC Highway 11 (The Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway which runs from Gaffney, SC to the Hartwell area, a distance of 112 to 130 miles depending upon your information source). Park on the paved area and go up behind the sign. You must walk up the incline a short ways. Go right, do NOT cross the fence.

To open the container:
1) Dial in the combination, then slide UP the cover on the right side. NOTE: Do NOT try to open the shackle - it will NOT open!!!!
