Geocache Description:

The fourth in an ongoing series of caches placed near bodies of water in the Hat City. We plan on expanding this series over the next several months.

Congrats to King Rason & Armed Infant as co-FTFs!

Upper Kohanza Reservoir/Lake was completed in 1866, the first of many reservoirs built to supply Danbury's hat factories. The dam broke on January 31, 1869. The ensuing flood of ice and water killed 11 people in half an hour, and caused major damage to many homes and farms, as well as uprooting trees and moving boulders.

Placed along a trail that is off of the King Street School Nature trails. Park at King Street Primary School near the Butterfly Garden to access the red trail. Follow the red trail, when it splits continue to the right until you get to the blue trail. Keep along the blue trail until it loops back to the left near the lake, cross a small stream and keep going on this path. It is not blazed, but it is very easy to follow, at times right on the water's edge.

The cache is a small plastic cammo'ed box, there is room for small trade items and travelers - bring your own pen!

While here, you can also get the King's Cache mini-series placed by lifeguardally.
