Geocache Description:

Cache hidden in Glazier Arboretum, a 44-acre preserve on Whippoorwill Road, east of the hamlet of Chappaqua in the Town of New Castle, New York.

Glazier Arboretum trail maps may be in the box on the kiosk just beyond the parking area or try this online trail map.

Cache is a regular ammo box.

Please do not try to park anywhere other than in the designated parking lot to access this cache. The arboretum property is surrounded by private land.

This interesting property, owned and maintained by the Town of New Castle, has a mix of habitats: meadow (that is mowed infrequently to allow wildflowers), wetland (small marsh, floodplain forest, and small pond) with boardwalk and various forest types (including beech and some surviving hemlock stands).

An arboretum is a planted collection of trees. The original owner, Henry Glazier and his parents, planted many unusual trees here, many from other countries. A map and booklet about the trees was produced several years ago. Contact cache owner if interested.

Just to the north on Whippoorwill Road is Whippoorwill Park, also owned by the Town of New Castle, that offers more great walking and other caches to find.
