The Cache

After your Busy Day, come and relax on the short hike to the cache in the Lower Arroyo Park. The closest parking is at the Pasadena Roving Archers Range and Casting Club (N 34 08.425, W 118 10.038) off of Arroyo Blvd, and it's 700 feet to the cache one way on level ground. The cache is on the west side of the main water channel, and no bushwhacking is required. A well-maintained dirt path will get you within 40 feet of the final location (again, NOT at the posted coordinates). You are looking for an ammo can.
