### Geocache Description:

Walk just a little way down this pretty trail and be enveloped in birdsong and honeysuckle. Keep an eye out for butterflies near the water; I saw three different kinds the day I placed this cache.

Do Not go to the posted coordinates. If you do, you will see an historic mill and maybe some highland cattle, but you won't find the cache; it's not there.

So you can use a GPSr to find coordinates.
Can you plot a course by distance and degree?
In order to determine the coordinates for this cache, you will need three items:
The Map - you can print it here.
A Protractor - you can buy one anywhere they sell school supplies, or you can cut out the one you can print here.
A Ruler - you can buy one anywhere they sell school supplies, or you can cut out the one you can print here.
* For all three, make sure you print with Scaling set to None.

How to use the map:
Start at the X.
Draw a line from the center of the X, 2.5 cm @ 55°.
Your line will end on a number. This is A.
From the center of number A, draw your next line to number B.
From the center of number B, draw your next line to number C, etc.

A 2.5 cm @ 055° from center of X
B 2.0 cm @ 136° from center of A
C 2.0 cm @ 022° from center of B
D 3.0 cm @ 152° from center of C
E 1.5 cm @ 180° from center of D
F 5.5 cm @ 041° from center of E
G 2.7 cm @ 148° from center of F
H 2.1 cm @ 081° from center of G

Find the cache at the coordinates:
40 A.BC 75 DE.FGH

Where do I park?
Subtract 0.C94 from the latitude.
This will take you to a one car pull off.
Enter the trail at the green sign to the left of the bridge.

There is no bushwhacking required. The cache is a couple of feet off the trail, but fairly well concealed. Please rehide as you found it.

The cache is a medium sized Lock & Lock containing a nice array of swag.
FTF prize is an unactivated geocoin.
Good Luck!
