Geocache Description:

Walk about 0.25 miles east from parking. Look for the rock coffee table. Go right off the trail here.

The cache is a small jar-type camoflaged container with log small items and pencil. (Please note: there is a letterbox in the vicinity and easily spotted...this is NOT the cache) The cache is typically hidden. You will probably be greeted with a hello from the nearby rooster no matter what time a day you arrive.

The Larkin Bridle Trail in western Connecticut runs east/west for 9 miles and follows the path of an old New England to New York railbed (New Haven Railroad) between Southbury and Rt. 63 in Naugatuck, Connecticut. The rail trail is largely unimproved, except for the first couple of miles and is best suited for mountain bikes. Expect to encounter some muddy and sandy sections as well as rocky, uphill approaches to many of the street crossings.

The Larkin State Park Bridle Trail is perfect for a mountain biking adventure through a quiet stretch of scenic wilderness. The landscape is mostly wooded with some rolling hills, open fields, wetlands, ponds and brooks. Heading west towards Towantic Hill, the trail climbs gently for awhile. Southford Falls State Park is just south of the trail off Rt.188, where you can find outhouses, picnic areas, a cascading waterfall, covered bridge and hiking trails.

Note: Beautiful during all seasons, this is a lovely trail for a winter mountain bike ride with views of frozen ice waterfalls hanging from the rock walls.
