on the east side of Rt #7 in a gravel parking lot
Stay on the Ives Trail
In the back of the parking area turn north to follow the Ives Trail, keeping #7 on your left (not along the pond). Simply follow the blazed Ives Trail. As you approach the cache, note the trail-registry box.
RSOT = right side of trail
There is no climbing required at the cache site. Dont' be tempted to leave the trail too soon.
Want to do a good deed? Provide a little trail maintenance en route.
Too, you needn’t be paranoid. The gunshots you (might) hear come from target shooting at the Wooster Mountain Shooting Range on the west side of Route #7.
Recommendation: After finding the cache, continue on the Ives Trail for about 300 ft to reach an old roadbed, one of many area “post roads”. If you explore, you'll want to mark a waypoint at this intersection to find the return trail later.
The Ives Trail continues to and through Tarrywile Park.
