Geocache Description:

First Landing State Park
Stash located behind large tree

Welcome to Seashore State Park's FIRST Geocache

Seashore State Park (aka First Landing) is located in the northeast corner of the City of Virginia Beach only a few miles north of the main beachfront.

There are several ways into the park but I recommended using the 64th Street entrance. You can avoid paying for driving in the park by parking just outside the gate in the residential area. The parking spaces for hikers/bikers just inside the gate is limited anyway and the park fee is really for those launching boats further in the park at the boat ramp. Did I mention bikers? Yes, you can get close to the stash by bicycle but you will have to ditch the bike to reach the treasure (park rules).

I recommend hiking in. If you use the main trail to head toward the stash there is a beautiful scenic trail back out along Broad Bay. There is a nice marsh overlook at N 36 54.409 W 76 01.810 and a great view of Broad Bay from White Hill at N 36 54.123 W 76 01.673. If you want to take the scenic route in rather than on the way out, walk down the road toward the boat ramp and look for the Long Creek Trail entrance to the right.

The stash is located behind a large tree. Good Luck.
