Geocache Description:

Welcome to the Darkness....
The listed coordinates are for the parking area/trailhead, where you will begin your search for the missing professor, Maurice Zann. Be sure to bring a strong flashlight (and spare batteries, just in case). Once you venture onto the trail, keep a sharp lookout...a few hundred feet in, you may find that strange, glowing eyes are spying on you. Look high, look low — they may be watching from just about anywhere. Unknown dangers lurk in the darkness, so stick to the trail, at least until you see a clear sign that you should alter your course (a cluster of three bright eyes). From there, seek out a nearby entity possessing many eyes and a big mouth; it may throw you a bone. If you reach this point safely, know that you are uncomfortably close to discovering what dire circumstances befell Maurice Zann. Be would be a shame for you to go missing too....

Note: If you see eyes deep in the woods before you've received a clue from the Entity of Many Eyes and a Big Mouth, you're better off ignoring them; following them may have been Professor Zann's tragic mistake. The Entity will give you the numbers to fill in the following:

N 36° 10.XXX' W 079° 49.XXX'
