Geocache Description:

The last of a series of caches in Franklin Gulf County Park. This is an old school cache series for the strong of heart.

Franklin Gulf Welcome to the "This IS Franklin Gulf" Series. This cache, "BLOOD MUSHROOM" is the final one of the series. This cache is not found at the listed coordinates. To find the coordinates for this cache you first acquire the clues from the first 3 caches in the Series (see next section for caches in the series).

Franklin Gulf is a undeveloped Erie County Park. It is nestled between North Collins and Eden NY. It has numerous types of terrain and many scenic areas. This series will take you to all parts of the Park via the creek bed. This final is located at the top of the gorge and can be reached via numerous ways.

The Complete "This IS Franklin Gulf" Series:
GC1W6AG - This IS Franklin Gulf 1 - GENESIS
GC1W6AH - This IS Franklin Gulf 2 - CASCADE
GC1W69Z - This IS Franklin Gulf 3 - MAXIMUS (Multi cache)
GC1W6AW - This IS Franklin Gulf 4 - BLOOD MUSHROOM

Thumbs Up Proper dress is important for completing this series - you will be walking in the creek bed on slippery slate.

You can try this series in the winter, but jump the difficulty factor up by a few notches!

It is recommended that you park at the listed Parking waypoint and do the caches in order. This final is not that far from "This IS Franklin Gulf 3 - MAXIMUS."

This is an old school cache series for the strong of heart. A .50 cal ammo can is awaiting the brave!
