Geocache Description:

A great hike on well marked, level, historic trails in Clarence Fahnestock State Park.

This is one of my favorite spots to hike in the park. You will be hiking on and old railway bed used during the Civil War by mule drawn cars to help bring Iron ore to the foundry in Cold Spring.
The start is on the AT and then exits the AT about half way through the hike. My original plan was to take the railroad trail all the way to the hiding spot but the NY State Dept. of parks and recreation has decided to restore a wildlife habitat so a part of the trail (my favorite part) is closed until construction of some bridges and a dam are complete so this has added about a half a mile to the trip. The cache is 1.5 miles from the junction of the AT as the GPS flies. The cache is a 6" x 6" x 2 1/2" Tupperware container some kids toys,a bumper sticker, 2 WG bills, and an unopened Red Hot Chili Peppers -Califonication CD. I would like to see the CD thing keep going if you plan on taking the CD bring one with you to replace it, it doesn't have to be new just not a CD-R. Don't forget to take a rest on my favorite rock about a 1/4-mile before the cache on the right.
Enjoy, Kevin
