Geocache Description:

We hid this cache whilst exploring with the 1st Lilleshall and Muxton Scouts, who had a Geocaching training evening, learning how to navigate using a GPS (finding waypoints using Longitude and Latitude). The cache is on the Hutchison Way, a nice countryside footpath - its is one of the less used trails so a little over grown - hence its name 'the hidden trail'.

The Hutchison Way is a 18.5 mile trail linking Wellington to Newport. A fascinating route linking two historic towns.Created by Telford & Wrekin council as a millennium project and named in honour of late former Chief Executive of the council David Hutchison, the original inspiration of the route.

The cache is a decent sized rectangular lunch box, which the Scouts have filled with the usual assortment of goodies, and the log book. Its a really nice walk if you park in the free car park by the Scout Hut / Lilleshall Primary School and walk down Willmoor Lane, alternatively there is parking for one car at the end of Willmoor Lane. I have marked the trail head, you need to take the Hutchison Way footpath that goes off down to your left. It is a bit overgrown with nettles in places (so NO SHORTS), but in return you are rewarded with an abundance of wildlife
