Geocache Description:


Washington Park Arboretum



The first (and only) waypoint is a sign at the Graham Visitors Center in Washington Park Arboretum. There is a map of the Arboretum that includes the following information:

The Washington Park Arboretum is comprised of 230 acres containing over 40,000 individual trees, shrubs, and vines, representing nearly 4,400 species and cultivated varieties from around the world.

There then follows a numbered list (from 1-11) of the various major collections and areas within the Arboretum.

The trailhead to the final cache is somewhat overgrown. The beginning of the trail can be found at:

N 47° 38.New Zealand High Country Exhibit/Azalea Way/Loderi Valley

W 122° 17.Joseph A. Witt Winter Garden/The Pinetum/Foster Island



The final cache is located at:

N 47° 38.New Zealand High Country Exhibit/Brian O. Mulligan Sorbus Collection/Zero

W 122° 17.Joseph A. Witt Winter Garden/Woodland Garden/Zero



The green matchstick container is located in a tree right next to the trail. Although overgrown, including one downed tree to step over, the trail should not prove too difficult to negotiate.

Washington Park Arboretum grounds are open from dawn to dusk. Please honor those operating hours when searching for this cache.
