Geocache Description:

The coordinates are for parking. Locate the cache by completing three other caches:

Go. Fight. Win. Vertical Limit
Prairie Trail 20K
Tour le Lac

Think you're in shape? Step up to the challenge of The Crystal Lake Tricachelon! To claim this cache you will have to climb, bike, and paddle your way to victory. Alternatively, if it's winter you may find yourself XC skiing / snowshoeing your way into the record book.

This cache is a walk in the park (pun intended) compared to the other three legs of the journey. I've loaded the cache with some of my favorite books to help exercise that brain of yours after all the physical labor. Bring a book to trade or another large item you've been itching to leave in a cache - this one measures 12x12x18. Speaking of itching, if you don't bushwhack you'll find yourself on a barely maintained service trail, so dress accordingly. Congratulations and cache on!

Additional Hints (Decrypt)

[Get the final coordinates by COMBINING the digits found in one of the caches with the bogus coordinates found in the other two caches. As a bonus, the trail head may be found by REPLACING the digits rather than combining them.]
