Geocache Description:

Hidden Cougar #1 is located in a natural area with gorgeous views, at 6558 feet. Look for animal tracks while you look for the cache!

Be sure to take your time as you hike up the intial part of the trail--it's steep, but not too hard if you don't rush. On the course, you'll be in fresh air and in natural landscape with huge boulders, cacti, deer and bobcat prints, and junipers, with a sweeping view of Albuquerque, Mt. Taylor and the Tram. Be sensitive to the environment when you're cross country off the intitial part of the course. From the parking area at the Tram ($1 to park), there's a sign at N35 11.420 W106 28.755. Walk to a water meter cover at N35 11.389 W106 28.676, then to an old metal post at N35 11.358 W106 28.649 (watch for the barbed wire near the ground). Follow the faint trail to an anthill at N35 11.342 W106 28.667. Hidden Cougar #1 is at N35 11.328 W196 28.700. In addition to the log book, I've placed pens, pencils, flashlights, keyrings, screwdrivers and, in honor of the coming season, Christmas decorations, in the cache. Enjoy your trek!
