A Handy Spot for an Ammo Can

A good ol' Traditional Ammo Can!
I was recently out doing maintenance on one of my caches, and decided to explore a dead-end trail to see if there were any potential spots for new hides thereabouts.
I found a pretty cool location, and I said to myself "Greg, this would be a handy spot for an Ammo Can.”
What? You don't talk to yourself while hiking? I thought everybody did...
Anyway, it was a nice little rocky area with plenty of nooks and crannies to stash a classic 50 cal surplus box. On top of that, there was a half-decent view. I thought all of those had been taken already!
My first impulse, what with it being Halloween season and all (my favorite time of year), was to build a creepy themed container similar to the ‘Presumed Dead’ caches I did last October. As fate would have it, I just didn’t have the time to be creative this time out. Maybe next year.
I opted for a more classic approach to be sure I claimed this choice spot before someone else did. I prepped a good old ammo box and let it loose. Sometimes it is best to keep things simple, don’t you agree?
Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!
The cache is located in Trout Brook Preserve. Suggested parking is at the end of Bradley Road in Easton at N41 14.729, W073 20.555.
From the lot, take the first left onto the Red Trail. The terrain is steep at points, but it's a great hike! You will intersect with the Purple Trail at marker #29 - take that towards the prize.
I've added a waypoint (N41 14.853 W073 20.797) for where to turn off of the trail for the last 300 feet or so. Because of various rough spots along the hunt, this cache is not suggested for younger kids.
