Geocache Description:


This is one of the classic rides of NSW, up there with Lady Carrington Drive in Royal National Park (though be warned - it's longer and harder, taking 3-4 hours). The trail runs between Woodford (altitude 607 m) and Glenbrook (altitude 163 m). Starting at Woodford is recommended! We placed this cache whilst on a scooter ride from Lawson to Glenbrook via the Oaks Fire trail. Great fun and we aren’t that fit by any means. It can be done by foot and to do so I would spend the whole day doing it. Riding our scooters (the push type without a motor) it took about 3.5 hours. A mountain bike would be slightly less and to walk would take a couple of hours more. The cache is hidden just off the track at a rough halfway point. If you feeling strong come in from Glenbrook other wise start at Woodford as we did and do the whole trip to Glenbrook. For more info on the hike, ride or scoot do a google search on The Oaks fire trail, you will find a lot of information there that may be of use to you. We hope you have as much fun as we did placing it. The terrain gets a score of 3.5 as the cache is a fair few kilometres from the closest parking area.Some people have said this is too harsh. I thought so too at first but when the Geocaching Rating System is used it gives a score of 4. After you have done the cache see if you can come up with a lower number. http://www.clayjar.com/gcrs/?
