Geocache Description:

THIS WAS THE FIRST CACHE HIDDEN IN SYCAMORE CANYON! It is in the NW portion. The hike is about .4 miles of up and down. Follow the narrow trail. There is a short, steep climb from where you park to hit the main trail. Off of Canyon Crest Drive take Via Concepcion SE to the end, park at N 33 56.797 W 117 19.582. The closer streets don't allow parking on the street. There are also mountain bike routes. Dogs ok! Watch for rattlesnakes when the weather warms up.

The cache is well camouflaged (we think!). The cache is a medium sized cylinder, but with a smaller opening of 3 1/4" diameter. There is a telephone pole with a 360 on it in the general area. Our GPS was giving us a small range of readings-hope this gets you close enough!

Cache Contents:

  • colored chalk
  • 2 AA batteries
  • pencil top erasers
  • mini clamp
  • Generic Travel Bug wanting to head East!
  • plastic coin purse
  • glue stick
  • mud mask
  • hair treatment
  • foot creme
  • glo in dark scorpion
  • teenage girl's new funky shirt
  • log and pencil
If the steep bank where you park looks too eroded,park at N 33 56.798 W 117 19.817 (few streets W)and walk E cross country to meet the cache trail. This adds 2 small hills. For a 1.5m (1 way) ride/hike to near the cache, park at this spot and head on trail going S straight ahead and up steep little hill. At first trail junction go down towards gully. Follow trail along gully then towards the telephone pole with big support wires at N 33 56.327 W 117 19.560. At this junction go towards first parking coordinates to meet up with the narrower cache trail. For a much longer,steeper ride, start farther S on Canyon Crest or Allesandro. No shade!
