How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

A Christmas Themed Cache (at least for the holiday season and then it will revert to a traditional cache!). Based on one of the stages from Cachemas 2007, we wanted to do something that was holiday themed and a little different. 

This is a multi-cache with a twist. At the header coordinates look towards approximately 50 degrees and there you will find a snowflake. Then find another about 50 - 100 feet away. Find all 30 snowflakes and they will lead you to the cache. At some spots you may see a couple of flakes with the same number. We took pity on you as I thought it was too hard to spot the single flake.  Obviously, please don't remove the snowflakes from the trees...

For this cache we have "wrapped presents" for you. Please only take one present - "you get what you get and you don't get upset" as Aidan would say! If you don't like what you get, you can leave the present in the cache for future trades - or take it with you. 

As usual, if you take a present please trade for something similar. Future visitors can then choose to keep their present or trade for something they know. Hopefully not coal!

Could be a challenge with lots of snow as the stars may not stand out. And now for the shameless plug - if you have not completed The Adventure Of The Lost Protykus you may want to visit her while you are in the woods. The final of this one is kind of on the way to the first stage of that cache.

Good luck, happy holidays and as always, have fun!

  • Park your vehicle at N 41.06.912  W 073.36.696.  The powers that be have closed the parking area for these woods so you will need to park along the side of the road or at one of the small pull offs.  If you park along the road please be sure to pull in close as the road is quite narrow.  I typically reverse into the spot highlighted in the parking coordinate as getting out from head in can be tricky. NOTE - DON'T PULL OFF INTO THE SPOT IF THE GROUND IS WET - YOU MAY GET STUCK! STAY ON THE ROAD AND PARK ALONG THE SIDE!
  • The trails in the wood are maintained by The Greenwich Riding Trails Association so you may run into a few of our equine friends as you walk the trails.  Please note horses do tend to make things a bit muddy so be prepared for a bit of mud as you walk these woods.
  • Nothing is mentioned about dogs, but I suggest you keep them on a leash as we do share the woods with horses and I'd hate to scare them.
