Geocache Description:

Small lock and lock near a rock wall with log, pencil, and room for swag.
NOTE: No rocks need to be removed to access the cache

Rock walls have been used for thousands of years to delineate property lines. As modern building techniques evolved or property is consolidated throughout the years, their importance decreases and they are abandoned. I always found it interesting when I come across a rock wall where I least expect it: What did the original property look like? Why a boundary here?

This is the third in a series highlighting forgotten rock walls that I have come across, usually while geocaching. The others are available at the following link:
Listing of Forgotten Rock Wall caches

This wall is located off Mill Road near an abandoned rail line. It is less that 0.1 miles from the roadside parking (watch the rocks) to the cache. Note that hunting is allowed in season so take the proper precautions.

Congrats to The Pugnuts on the FTF!
