Geocache Description:

The large black puma, startled by our sudden appearance from the undergrowth, snarled, and taking the deer it had recently downed, into it's mouth, climbed a sheer rock cliff to safety. Perched high above us it feasted on the remains of the deer.

Ok. So it was only a small black cat that when startled, vaulted onto a downed tree trunk and scampered quickly up the tree to safety on the cliff above us. But if you know JollyBGood (The Jolly Roger) no simple story will do when a bit of embellishing is possible. Thus Black Puma Gorge was born.

This is a great hiking area just keep your eyes open for a black puma.

There are two areas to park to get you close to this cache. I remember now why I always park from the further location and make the longer walk. Be advised if you park and walk from the Horseman's Camp you will be walking up and down some tough trails. The trails go through some ravines that are hard to navigate due to the horses hooves chewing up the trail. When wet the footing is muddy, slick and a good way to twist an ankle. Use extreme caution.
