Geocache Description:

You're looking for a regular sized lock-n-lock. Log, Pen, Goodies.

This started off as a bike-themed cache, but after looking at the coordinates, I couldn't resist changing the name at the last minute.

If you walk the "short way" around, I've provided the coordinates to the infamous red stake marking the entrance you should use. Turn right once entering the park from the red stake. The "long way" is the main park entrance - this will be a walk of several miles.

I've also provided a way-point for a scenic overlook. If you visit this way-point first, there is a nice deer trail that will minimize your bushwhacking.
