Geocache Description:

An ammo can on the Teatown-Kitchawan (TK) Trail near the Croton Reservoir.

We discovered (by accident) a new trail near Yorktown that connects the Teatown Reservation to the Kitchawan preserve. The trail passes through land near the Croton Reservoir that until recently was off limits -- land that bac has been anxious to explore. So, we had to check out the trail -- and put some caches along it of course.

The TK in the name is obvious. The "doh" is for discovering the trail by accident. The three together made Mac think of Tae Kwon Doh -- a sport that our son participates in. This is cache #2 or "Dool" in Korean. It is placed in a beautiful meadow that we decided just cried out for a cache.

The cache is an ammo can hidden 10' from the trail -- but you will need to go around to get at the cache. We suspect that some of you may not be happy with us as access to the cache will require you to navigate some thorn bushes. But with some wiggling and maneuvering Mac was able to get in and out without getting stuck and you should be able to as well.

The best access to this section of the TKD trail is from the road along the Croton Reservoir currently marked on Google maps as Croton Dam Rd / NYC Rd 4. The trail actually follows part of the road. The parking coordinates indicate where the trail leaves the road to head south.

There is an unactivated travel bug tag for FTF prize, but if you have an FTF on another of the TKD caches, please take only one TB tag and leave the others for the next finder(s).
