It's in a small park in Glades County. Don't get locked up. Instead look for mounds.
At first the terrain is quite easy but gets rougher as your nearing the location. Look for an ammo can. More importantly, look at the sandy mounds and think about the Native people who once lived here. Typical stuff: plastic creatures, little books, a polished rock, CD, candle stick holders, and, oh, a travel bug. Make sure to look at as much of the park as you can and reflect on what once was.
January 2007 Note: one experienced geocacher ran across some barbed wire near the cache to the southeast a few yards along the ground. Please be careful as there is a property line boundry fence near the cache site and there is the possibility of an old stray fence on the park grounds. (You do not need to cross any fences)
This park which opened first in 1990 has recently been named in honor of Glades County's Tax Appraiser Larry Luckey.
On the first Saturday each February a "Sugar Cane Grinding Festival" is held with displays and music. See Area Points of Interest for more local information.
