Geocache Description:

Anyone up for the challenge. You’ll have to pack in your hiking boots for this one. I have hidden clues in 10 different caches in the Hogsback area. You’ll need to collect them all to find this cache. Along the way you’ll view over 10 water falls, have amazing views, plenty of wild life to be spotted, get lots of fresh mountain air, loose a few kilo’s and come across some strange sightings. A combination of all the terrain’s and difficulties give this caches is 4.5/4.5 rating.

The listed co-ordinates are for the entrance of Hogsback, as well as the start of the Big Tree day trail. For more info on the day trails, you could visit the tourist information center (S32° 35.881 E26° 56.314) and pick up a copy of a map, which has walks of the area.
