Geocache Description:

Take a nice walk along a stream to some hidden treasures, including some mysterious ruins and a waterfall.

A medium lock and lock container hidden  in a rock crevice near mysterious ruins of a time gone by.  You may want to find our previous hide LowGeo, and continue along following the stream.  Cross the stream near lowgeo to get to the north side of the stream and your terrain will be much easier with less wading and bushwacking. You may need to wade in and out a bit but the water is generally shallow and refreshing.  The cache is well hidden in a rock crevice.  We are curious to know what the surrounding ruins are from, looks like a stone house with a room shaped like a turret, and of wall surrounding the house? A fellow cacher has told us this was a Tea House way back when...if anyone has more details, please share! So fascinating to imagine what was here.  Once you find the cache, turn around to where to stream continues, and just ahead you can see a beautiful waterfall!  
There isn't a hiking path, so bush waking is necessary, although much of the area is sand and rocks.  
Enter the parking area from the entrance to Lowland Park, also known as Charles Eccher Park.  The sign says residents only but it is rarely enforced.  The cache is not located in the park, but just outside the park.  If anyone knows the history of this area, we would love to know!
