How Geocaching Works

This cache is located at White Oak's Potter Sanctuary. Trails at the Potter Sanctuary connect with trails at Porcupine Hill.
The 24 acres of woodland along the Asnebumskit Ridge on the Holden-Paxton line are the second highest area in the Town of Holden. The property, overlooking Asnebumskit Pond just to the west, welcomes the public with hiking, jogging, bird-watching, dog-walking, quiet meditation and picnicking alongside vernal pools, porcupine dens, and blueberry bushes. The 60 acres of Porcupine Hill, which White Oak aquired in 2010, adjoin the Potter Sanctuary and provide a 3-mile walking tour on connecting trails.
White Oak ran a successful fund-raising campaign to buy this property in 2011; land trust members, foundations and the Commonwealth contributed more than $200,000 to buy the land and repair two frame buildings left from its earlier days as a summer camp. From 1946 into the 1980's the Worcester Natural History Society ran its unique Nature Training School there, giving area children expert instruction in the environment and conservation.
You will find an information board at the entrance to the trails. Maps are usually available.
Please remain on the trails. No bushwacking needed. The cache is located about 50 feet from the trail.
