How Geocaching Works

Welcome to a section of the Trans Canada Trail just east of the former "Town of Lindsay" - now part of the “City of Kawartha Lakes.” The trail is not maintained in the winter. "So what," you say, "we're cachers!" Point taken, but, if you come in the winter, come prepared. The cache is a straightforward multi with no tricks but should give you a pleasant walk - a walk which varies considerably through the seasons.
Parking co–ordinates are given for approaching from the north-west off Highway #36 and it is easiest and safest to approach from the north. Once off the highway, it may be found expedient - depending upon the weather - to park along the approach to the posted parking area rather than in the parking area itself. One can approach from the south-east too; if you choose this option, parking is up to you. However, please do not use the community centre parking area because that requires bushwacking through an area that should remain as it is. There is parking with access slightly further to the east.
As a matter of interest, our GPSr showed an abandoned rail trail almost 200 m to the south-west of the one on which you will be walking; we are puzzled by this and have no explanation!! We'd be interested to have you log your experience in this regard!
There is poison ivy at places along the trail; we have tried to avoid it in our placements - a redirect and a final - but be careful all the same.
The redirect is a camouflaged pill container (push and turn, remember!) in an area where the approach could be wet in some seasons and the final is a camouflaged LOCK&LOCK container with a variety of goodies - thanks to a prize we won at the Kawartha Cachers breakfast in November, 2011. The final is less than 20 metres off the trail but will take some minor bushwacking to reach.
Enjoy the walk . . . and congratulations to butterfly5 for being FTF!!
