Geocache Description:

Welcome to the Mulholland Preserve Series !
This is one of a series of six caches located on the Mulholland Preserve off of Pond Brook Road, Newtown, CT. This preserve is the property of the Newtown Forest Association.

Don't Get Hungup

For parking see Mulholland Preserve (1) - Trailnead

This puzzle cache is NOT located at the posted coordinates. This cache is ON the Mullholland property (see green shaded area of map below). The location of all caches (except Number One) are ON the Mulholland Property.

TWO of the traditional caches on the Mulholland Property will help you to determine the location of this cache.

You can check your answers for this puzzle on

see link to the NFA website: Mulholland Property

Note: This property is accessible year round to all but is closed at night. All NFA properties are held in trust and are open to the public from sunrise to sunset. Dogs are allowed but must be on leash and under the owner's control at all times.

Mulholland Fact: John Mulholland Edited "The Sphinx" for twenty-three years and it took a physical and financial toll. But rather than limiting his activities to his live performances, Mulholland had actually embarked on a new endeavor…an endeavor far more secretive than anything in the realm of conjuring. He had entered a world of covert operations, espionage, mind control, drugs, and even death. John Mulholland had gone to work for the CIA.

I would like to thank the following people:

  • JMONTI for providing the design of this puzzle cache. He came up with this design as a possible solution to a ZURCHER puzzle cache.
  • Guy Peterson from the NFA who provided input on how to get access to the Mulholland Preserve and for giving us permission for placing these caches.
  • Pauline Pierce Mulholland for donating these properties to NFA .

Congratulations to Obvious One, Gunner453006 and Karensplace08 for First To Find, Their combined efforts deserves a poem...

On a sunny, spring time day,
This talented trio went on its way.

Twas' Knot Easy to cross Pond Brook
But they could not help it, they had to look.

They cleared the leaves and searched the ground
And all at once Rabbit Trick was found.

Memorial Plaque required a climb
The intrepid trio did not mind.

Just to Log It was their quest
So they did their very best.

To Top it Off, they solved the riddle
They sang, they danced and played the fiddle.
(OK that's a stretch, but it does rhyme with riddle)

Don't Get Hung Up we heard them say
And the clever trio did find a way.

The Mulholland Series they were First To Find
And the trio's friendship it did bind.

I wish to congratulate:
...One, ...Six, and ...Eight.
