Geocache Description:

At long last, a hide that combines two of our favorite sports; canoeing and geocaching :)

If you choose to embark on this gorgeous paddle up Black Creek you will need a canoe (or a similar type of water craft) and don't forget your safety gear.
Recommended parking is at the posted question mark and there is a boat launch nearby. You will have to paddle up the Niagara River a short way and under the parkway bridge to arrive at the mouth of the creek. From here you will paddle along and collect the required clues at the three posted waypoints. After some simple math on the fly you will be rewarded with coordinates to the final.

N42 57.A0B
W79 00.CDD

A= The number on one of the signs at stage 1, DIVIDED BY 2
B= The number on one of the signs at stage 1
C= The numerical value (A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.) of the first letter of the animal mentioned on the sign at stage 2. PLUS ONE!
D= The number on the sign at stage 3

Hope you enjoy finding this challenging hide as much as we did placing it! Happy cachin'
