Geocache Description:

Quick cache just off the road as you enter Lynches River County Park ... pease park with all four wheels off the pavement!


The scientific name for the creature you search is "Arachnid" (uh-rack-nid). That name comes from an old Greek story. In the story, a girl named Arachne loved to weave. Her weaving was so beautiful and perfect that the goddess Athena got jealous. To punish Arachne, Athena turned her into a ... well ... find the cache to find out!


Today, all Arachnids, weave silk. The more commmon name we call this creature is actually from a German word meaning to spin.


Lynches River County Park is a popular day use park located south of Florence off Highway 52 between Effingham and Coward. For the young at heart, there's an elevated canopy "treehouse" walk. Canoe and kayak rentals are also available for those who would like to paddle Lynches River. A river boardwalk and numerous hiking trails allow for a first hand look at both the river swamp and white sand hills. The "riverwalk" boardwalk is over 1200 feet long and handicap accessible.


For those wishing to spend a bit more time in the park, there's also a "Splash Pad" swimming area, baseball diamond, and archery range. Cabin and camping accomodations, as well as numerous picnicing faciilties can also be found at Lynches River.


Of course there's also plenty of geocaches. Caches can be found along the river, near the Splash Pad and campground, as well as along all the park's various hiking trails. There's even a treehouse cache and a "submarine" cache celebrating the recovery of the H. L. Hunley.
