fox51: Checked on the cache this morning to replace the full log and to tie wrap the cache to the tree to keep finders from untwisting the wire and moving the cache to a new location.

Its gone, and I was unable to find it in the general area.

So sad to see both this one and Asilomar Train station go missing at the same time, as they were often found by those staying at Asilomar and had just a little time. I won't replace again since the area has changed too much to replace in kind.

Both I & II had great runs, and thanks to all who favorited.

Geocache Description:

Sign only natural camo in city open space. Bring a pen!


A new incarnation of a previous cache on the SP ROW.

The popular recreation trail along the coast in Pacific Grove is built on an old rail right-of-way. The recreation trail ends at Lovers Point Park, but the old rail line continued on. The Pacific Grove train station was located where the mobile home park resides. The rail line followed the contour around the peninsula through what is now the PG golf links and ended at Moss Beach between Asilomar Beach and the present Spanish Bay Resort.

Although its use for trains has long since been abandoned, the rail bed still exists as a railroad right-of-way. A section in Pacific Grove is the regional open space park Southern Pacific Railroad Right-of-Way. Located in a forested area of Pacific Grove, its a peaceful stroll and a glimpse into the past.

The entrances to the open space are where it crosses city streets. There is no need to cross private property to get to this cache!

Cache lid unscrews. Please replace as found.
