Geocache Description:


This cache is located in Halpatiokee Regional Park in central Martin County just east of I-95. This large family and sportsman’s recreation area is on land once managed by the South Florida Water Management District. Park amenities include multiple baseball and football/soccer fields, batting cages, tennis courts, covered skating rink, hiking trails, biking trails, and off-road mountain biking trails, a primitive campground, a child’s playground, and picnic tables and pavilions. The south fork of the St. Lucie river partially boarders the eastern edge of the park and a canoe/kayak outfitter is on the edge of the park, as well a public boat ramp on Lost River off Cove Road just N.E. of the park. There are lots of animals, birds and fish to see on the hundreds of acres. The lakes here were created by using the fill to build I-95. You may spot a gopher tortoise, hog, armadillo, deer or perhaps an alligator along the river or near the lakes.

This cache has no name because, frankly, there is nothing distinctive about its location. But enjoy the lake view along the way. You are looking for a camo’d plastic pill bottle not on ground level. You can hike or mountain bike to the cache. Wear closed shoes that may get wet, a helmet if biking, and take plenty of water. There are several lakes and creeks nearby, so the cache may not be as close as it seems.

Caution. With many meandering, crisscrossing trails and old roads, make sure you are logging on your GPS in case you need to backtrack your way out.
