Geocache Description:

A regular size lock and lock hidden in Mohansic County Park.

Mohansic County park includes the Mohansic golf course and a large area of undeveloped land adjacent to the golf course. We have wondered for some time what was out there -- the answer is a beautiful mixed forest with highly varied topography. The woods can be accessed from the golf course itself -- subject to access restrictions to the course, but there is also an old trail/road in from Hunterboork Rd with a place to pull off and park.

There are no maintained trails in the park, but there are several old roads/trails that are kept clear by use. If you come in from Hunterbrook Rd, follow the old road up until it intersects with an underground cable right of way, turn right along the right of way and continue up over the hill and down. After you cross the stream at the very bottom of the hill, look for a trail on the left. If you come in from the golf course follow the overgrown road down to an intersection with the trail and turn left along the trail. Or you can bushwhack in through the quite open forest from several places along the golf course.

Bac highly recommends the hike in from Hunterbrook Rd. -- it is not a short hike and there is some up and down, but you will get to see the variety of topography that the park offers. The terrain rating of 3 applies to this approach to the cache.

The cache is hidden roughly 100 yards from an abandoned factory. We have no idea (yet) what the factory was for but we were surprised to find such a structure out here. Clearly the local youths know about it. Please be careful if you explore the factory as there is a large amount of broken glass and some rusty and potentially sharp objets both inside and outside.
