Geocache Description:

This multi-part cache is located on Bogus Mountain in the Terre Haute Wilderness on the Danbury/Bethel line. This is a long hike with lots of uneven terrain.

Access to the trailhead can be gained through the Francis J. Clark Industrial Park in Bethel. There are a couple of different spots to access the trails in Terre Haute. Do not park in any of the lots owned by the businesses. The best bet is to park in the cul-de-sac at N41 21.510 W73 25.685 for access to the trailhead at N41 21.478 W73 25.691.

Stage 1 will take you to a large tree with lots of initials and dates carved into it. To get the coordinates for the Final, find the year (xxyy) that EFB left his/her initials. (Note: No trees were harmed during the creation of this cache)

Final = N 41 20.760 + .0xx W073 25.683 + .0yy

The Final will take you on a longish hike into the heart of Terre Haute. No need to bushwhack at any point. The trails will get you there eventually. Use care though as the trail blazes are spotty at best. The Final location is just off the trail. The cache is a green 30CAL ammo box filled with trinkets and a log book.
