Geocache Description:

Easy parking and mostly open trail approach, ending with a short bushwhack. There are elevation changes, but none are severe, suitable for all ages.

Very pleased to have been able to adopt this wonderful old cache (arguably the 2nd oldest in Virginia) originally placed on 16 January 2001. I assumed my parental duties on 7 March 06, disabled the cache and completely renewed the container, log book, and contents. I retained what was salvageable, and removed/archived the 4 old log books. The cache is now a 7.62mm ammo can, camouflaged and has an “Official Geocache” sticker affixed. In keeping with the original owner‘s (Team Baccus) intent, I am keeping the music theme, and have restocked it with some CDs. I ask that if you take music, you leave order to keep the theme running. However, there are other non-music items in the cache for trade, and as even, trade up, or don‘t trade. Please note, I have added an additional Waypoint for suggested parking, it is just off the trailhead to the cache, and is approximately 0.30 miles from GZ. Parking is also available inside Lake Fairfax Park, it is a much longer, but even more beautiful hike.

This is a Fairfax County Park, and Fairfax County Parks are open daily, dawn to dusk, please do NOT hunt this cache at night or any other time the park is closed. Most of the approach to the cache site is on a wide, hard packed, dirt, active mountain bike trail (horses as well), be careful and watch for riders. The woods are open, not much undergrowth which makes the short bushwhack off trail fairly easy. Enjoy the cache, you‘re experiencing Geocache History, and please re-hide it as well or better than found so that it can continue to add to its longevity. The remaining cache description (in lighter print) was submitted by Team Baccus when they placed the cache…it too is history, so I am retaining it on the cache page.

NOTICE: Please be respectful of the posted park hours. If you enter the park after hours you are trespassing. If you are stopped you can be ticketed or arrested and will put the future of geocaching in the parks in jeopardy

Multipule starting points. First is at the trailhead behind the Reston Ice House on Michael Fairiday Drive. Second is from the south eastern end of the soccer fields in Lake Fairfax. Second access point is a longer hike. Hilly terrain suitable for all ages. This is a musical cache. Stash is in a clear tupperware container with a white lid. There are some old CD's here and I would like to encourage you to bring some old CD's that you don't listen to anymore and swap them with the one's that are left here. Everyone's taste in music is different so this should be a fun cache. This cache will be placed tomorrow morning, 1.16.01 so don't look for it until then. Good luck, Team Baccus
