backroads2010: Sad to say, it's time to archive this one. Too many people stop here and take the cache. I'll let some time pass and come up with something new in the future I hope.

Geocache Description:

A small 'series' of caches along Redington Road of differing sizes and difficulty, placed as time (and temperatures!) permit.

Along side Redington Road as it begins to climb, parking is available on the south side of the road after the cattle guard. Careful of muggles, especially on the weekends, please replace cache so that it is not easily found. Container holds a few trinkets and a log, but is not big enough for a trackable though it might hold a coin. No need to cross any fences or play in the cattle guard.

To get to these caches, travel out Tanque Verde Road to the East until it becomes Redington Road. All these caches are East of a large wash (intermittent creek) which is the start of the road heading uphill. Please do NOT go through this wash if it is full or signed that the road is closed. I do NOT suggest that you head up Redington Road if it is raining hard even if the wash is empty. As we all know, it can fill rapidly. The first mile or so after the wash is now paved and easy to drive. But it shortly becomes dirt. It can usually take a 2 wheel drive vehicle, but it depends on how recently the road has been graded. There are steep sections, washboards, and it is often narrow with fast trucks zipping by. Cell service is fine on 'this' side of the mountain, but spotty on the other side where it heads down to the San Pedro River Valley. It is completely up to YOU to decide if you want to drive this road. I don't particularly enjoy the first few miles. There are shooters in some sections, some areas are trashy, and weekends in the spring and fall can be REALLY busy with people. That being said, if the road is currently in good shape or you drive a high profile vehicle, AND you travel back far enough, it is a wonderful place to disappear into some really breathtaking land. I will be attempting to place caches along the stretch, all with easy parking nearby and no long stretches to hike, just fun hides. For the record, there was a BMW at the first parking area today, near the trailhead, so it is passable, just remember the choice is yours whether to do the road or not. Any questions about the road, feel free to ask me and I will do what I can to help you.
