This series is located on the Dinglebrook Loop Woodland Trail (blue blazed) which is part of the Burr Farm Open Space in Brookfield, Conn. At the parking area listed you will find a kiosk which has a map of all the trails in the area. The entire series is about a 2.5 mile hike. Having knowledge of Disney's movie Snow White from 1937 is necessary when doing this series.
Warning: the adjacent Brookfield Open Space land allows bow hunting September 15th through January 31st.
The mission of this series is to find Snow White who has been hidden by the Evil Queen.
The seven dwarves: Doc, Bashful, Sneezy, Sleepy, Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, will help you find her but first you need to find them in the woods. Each dwarf will help you locate the next dwarf and by the end, you will have the location of Snow White.
The Evil Queen makes a potion to disguise herself as a peddler woman in order to trick Snow White.
To get to Doc, you must first solve the following puzzle based on the recipe for The Peddler's Disguise Formula.
Doc is located at:

1. "Moth wing dust"
3. "Skeleton dust"
5. "Mummy dust"
- B. To shroud her clothes:

6. "The black of night"
7. "The dark of night"
- C. To age her voice:

4. "A raven’s screech"
5. "A black crow’s cry"
- D. To whiten her hair:
6. "A scream of terror"
7. "A frightful scream"
9. "A scream of fright"
- E. To fan her hate:

8. "The gale of a hurricane"
- F. To mix it well:

Doc has faithfully taken care of all of the dwarves throughout the years. He desperately wants to find Snow White and try and help her as well. He asks that geocachers take up the quest to find her.
Doc contains the coordinates for Bashful.
Congratulations to MessSGT on being first to find all eight caches.
Magic Mirror on the wall who is the finest cacher of all?
The Magic Mirror tactfully replies:
Beyond the emerald hill, on a beautiful day in the fall.
The cacher called MessSGT answered Snow White's call.
MessSGT was the first to find with CTForester very close behind.
And so they are both fine cachers in this humble CO's mind.
