The Giant's Stairs Multi-cache

This cache has been archived.

OReviewer: As there's been no cache to find for a long time or has had no owner response for at least 30 days, I'm archiving it to keep it from showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements.

Please note that if geocaches are archived by a reviewer or Geocaching HQ for lack of maintenance, they are not eligible for unarchival.

After placing my last cache , The SplitRock Splendor, I did not think I could top that hike's natural beauty so fast...until I hiked this one. 

Do this cache seek when you've got a morning or afternoon to spare - you need to enjoy it to its fullest. There are many scenic spots to stop and admire the breathtaking view from the steep vertigo-inducing cliffs. This is a scenic hike at its best - well, for New Jersey, that is. 

Bring your camera, bring your, heck...pack a lunch and plan for an invigorating hike that will awaken your senses and give your body a cardiovascular cleansing!

If you wish, you can pick up a good trail map from the Park Headquarters at: N 40 57.212. W 73 55.238. 

Park at the State Line Lookout at : N 40 59.309 W 73.54.430  There is a refreshment area where you can stock up on water and treats before the hike.

An amusing titbit about this cache is that I could have placed the cache either in New Jersey or New York - within yards of each other. There is a fence that divides the States - DO NOT CRAWL UNDER OR OVER IT. The Giant Stairs are nearby ...
