Geocache Description:

This cache is hidden in a beautiful remote spot located near Christmas Creek in the new Charles H. Bronson State Forest. There are a number of ways you can get to the site. One way would be to park at the main entrance off of Phillips Road near coordinates N28° 35.513' W81° 02.540' and hike the new section of the Florida National Scenic Trail. It runs from the Chuluota Wilderness Area all the way to Seminole Ranch. When you get to the fence crossover at coordinates N28° 35.385 W81° 00.418, don't go across. Instead take the white blazed trail heading north. It should get you within 500ft of the cache. Some bushwhacking might be necessary.

Another alternate route would be to park at Seminole Ranch and hike the Florida National Scenic Trail from that direction or use the trails in Orlando Wetlands. See additional waypoints for parking and other important trail access points.

Contents and Bonus Items:

The cache contains the usual assortments of goodies, some custom made geo-buttons and a cache camera. There's also a bonus cache involved. All you have to do is try and figure out what the ancients were saying (see attached photo). Good luck!

Fees and Other Important Information:

Please do not enter the area during hunting season. Hunt dates can be found in the brochures located on the FWC website at During spring turkey season you can go in after 1:00 P.M. A $2 per person entry fee is required at the Phillips Road entrance.


Cache site has been approved by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Forestry.
