Geocache Description:

Cache is a large Lock-N-Lock in the Hunter's Island section of Pelham Bay Park

At 2,764 acres, Pelham Bay Park is the largest park in New York City. There are quite a few remarkably beautiful spots that make you wonder if you're really in New York City. This is one of them.

The closest parking is at Orchard Beach (fee in the summer months) but you can also park in the parking lot off of Middletown road in the neighborhood of Country Club, and follow the paved trails through the park and over the drawbridge toward Orchard Beach. If you take this route, I'd recommend bringing a bike! The Bx. 5 & 12 stop at Orchard Beach in the summer months and the Bx 29 will take you as far as the City Island Traffic Circle. Take it to the Rodmans Neck Stop.

There is a nice system of trails through Hunters Island, and many options of approach. Bring a camera and a bag for CITO!! Cache is about 100 feet off of the trail please replace it carefully and keep an eye out for muggles!
