Geocache Description:

The Cape Cod Rail Trail follows a former railroad right-of-way for 22 miles through the towns of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet. Its paved surface, few hills, and well-marked automobile crossings make it ideal for cyclists of all ages & abilities. From the rotary (GC2D22D) you can either head towards Harwich center & Chatham beyond that, or towards Nickerson State Park & on to Wellfleet.

Recently, a direct route from the Cape Cod Rail Trail in Harwich to Chatham's town center was also built. The extension comprises a 7.5-mile paved path from Harwich Center going past Brooks Park and then through Thompson’s Field heading east. In Chatham, you can watch planes fly in and out of the airport while riding towards its historic Main Street district. This new addition was christened the Old Colony Rail Trail, in honor of the abandoned railway line it follows between Harwich and Chatham.

The Stealth Trio thought there should be more caches along such a nice bike path & are doing what they can to make that happen. We hope you enjoy them!

I was hoping that there would be a nice open trail down to this pond, but no such luck. Off the bike trail there is a wide trail with an even fainter trail off of that. Then about 75' from that trail you will find the cache. I wouldn't go so far as to say bushwacking, pretty easy going.
