Geocache Description:

Park at the listed coordinates and head for stage one.

Viewing the gallery won't hurt you...



. This multi takes you on a bit less than a two mile walk on the well marked trails of the Collins Woodlot. Park at the indicated location and go west along Brick Kiln Road to the Falmouth Conservation Land trail head sign on the right. Cross the street and head into the woods to stage one.,,, The first two stages are within a foot of the trail, the rest a bit further off. The hints indicate the height of the micros above the trail floor from the closest part of the trail. The secondary clues are spoilers so don’t use them unless you are stumped. They are the objects the micros are on. All the micros are visible upon approach from the right angle and you don’t need to move anything to find them. Get to the right spot and there they are. As of 11/8/16 all of the micros have been checked, refreshed or replaced as needed and the hints updated to match. All stages (except 5&7) have both a primary marker and a laminated tag backup marker (see if you can spot them). The coords are reasonable except for stage 5. (Continue on and use the hint.) Coordinate repeatability ranged from inches to 60 feet today. . The final is a bit off the beaten path and requires a little scrambling. Take note of the trail marker at the junction and note that the clues indicate where the cache is, not how to get there. Unlike the micros, the cache is hidden with some care. There is also a tag to confirm you are looking in the right place. Sign the log, trade small goods if you like, and replace the cache as found. Enjoy the walk and the peacefulness of the woods.
