MSTzilla: I'm archiving the three caches out here to open it up for anyone who wants to place some here. You'll have to get the permits from the Clarence Fahnstock State Park. Happy Hiding,

Geocache Description:


This cache is located at Denning’s Point along the Hudson River in Beacon, NY. This area is part of the Hudson Highlands State Park and is a beautiful area. This area is terrific for wildlife, especially birds and waterfowl of all kinds. When placing it I saw swans, blue heron, and more species of ducks than I knew. The parking is a little way from the trailhead, but it’s an easy, relatively flat walk. Park by the Beacon Water Treatment Plant at the end of Denning’s Avenue. Now, this may not seem like a nice place to start a nature hike, but it will once you walk a short distance. Use your better judgement when parking and don’t block any of the roads or gates. There’s plenty of room. From the parking you’ll walk along an old road and cross a bridge over the train tracks. This is where you’ll find the trailhead. From here you’ll take a left and pass by a large, abandoned building. Once past the building turn right to spot the white trail markers. This trail creates a loop on Denning’s Point so you can decide which way to go. Check out MADD House and Denning's Point caches along this trail. Entire loop should be a little under 2.5 miles.

This cache is a 6x10 cylindrical lock-N-lock out very near the southern point of Denning’s Point. There is an unmarked, but easily followed short side trail to the point. The cache is within 20' of the trail. There is a lot of bounce in the area, but if you wait a little, it should settle down. After finding the cache, follow the trail another twenty yards to the point for a great view of the Hudson River and Bannerman’s Castle to the south. Be sure to bring you binoculars or a nice camera with a zoom for an even better view. The mountain that you see behind the castle is Storm King Mountain. There are some nice caches up there for a more challenging hike (see Butter Hill South and Perfect Storm for some awesome views).

For those interested in Benchmarks, there is a Geodetic Survey Disk Station located along the western edge of the point just a short walk to the north of this cache. (LX4400) The coordinates given on the benchmark page will lead you right to it.

NOTE: Denning’s Point is closed to the public from December 1st - March 31st because of efforts to restore the Bald Eagle in the Hudson Valley. During this time, I will temporarily disable the caches here and will pull them so that there is no temptation to disrupt this habitat.

This cache was placed with NYS Parks Geocaching permit # 20-07.
