Geocache Description:


Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold".

First published as a book in 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881-82 under the title The Sea Cook, or Treasure Island.

The influence of Treasure Island on our popular perception of pirates cannot be overestimated.

Stevenson linked pirates forever with treasure maps, schooners, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen with parrots on their shoulders. The treasure map with an X marking the location of the buried treasure is one of the most familiar in pirate folklore.

Parking is available in the Loantaka Way parking area. To access the trail head for this section of the park, you must walk (.25) along Loantake Way passed the old Gibbons horse Farm. Otherwise, follow the blue trail from the parking area, this will intersect with the red trail, and cross Loantake way further down from the parking area.
