Geocache Description:

On the Briarcliff Peekskill Trailway, a relatively easy 20-25 minute walk to a pretty spot with an interesting inhabitant.

So named because the swamp is indeed pretty. The Pileated Woodpecker I saw is better described as stunning. The name of this spot just occurred to me and that’s just what I’m gonna call it, regardless of what its real name may be. On the Briarcliff Peekskill Trailway, I came upon this walkway over the swamp a bit less than the halfway point between the parking area on Watch Hill Rd. and Trailways Series 2. This little swamp so impressed me as I passed it on my way from Traiway Series 1 to Trailway Series 2 that on my way back I stopped here for over an hour, just enjoying the woods, the water and the quiet. A few minutes into my stop, the quiet was interrupted by the woodpecker’s call.




This is an image I glommed from the web, I wasn’t able to get a good enough photo while I was there.
Look for this really outstanding looking fellow in the tall trees on the north side of the walkway.
