Geocache Description:

Regular cache between a rest stop and boulders.

This cache is the replacement for Rest on Your Laurels. That cache lasted for 7 years before nature or park maintenance destroyed its home. This replacement cache is in the same general area, but it is a different size (small vs. regular), different type (traditional vs. multi), different hide method, and different type of hide location. The purpose of this cache is to mark the Laurel Springs Rest Stop. It's a shady location with picnic tables, near several trails. It's on the Ridge Trail near the junction of the Coyote Peak Trail and not far from the Boundary Line Trail and the Ohlone Trail. The quickest way to get here is to hike up from behind the driving range. If you intend to continue hiking up the Ridge Trail, Coyote Peak Trail, or the Boundary Line Trail, you're going to need the rest. The cache is located near the rest stop. Because of the tree cover, GPS reception is likely to be iffy. Once you get in the area, use your geosenses to find the cache. It is only 3-4 steps from the downhill side of the trail. Bushwhacking or rock climbing is not necessary. It is a small, short, round plastic container.

Initial contents:
2 smashed coins
1 Star Wars coint
1 pin

9/7/13 update: The cache disappeared. I replaced it with a well-covered micro nearby. Bring your own pen.

7/22/14 update: The original Rest on Your Laurels cache, which is regular-size, rose from the dead as if by magic. I left the replacement cache in place, but since it is is harder to find than the original, I just turned it into a clue and moved the cache location to the resurrected and re-hidden original. It has stuff from many years ago. Make sure it stays hidden. Watch out for spiders, snakes, and PO. If you want to make this more challenging, find the clue cache, which was the replacement cache. It's a micro at N 37° 12.865 W 121° 46.424. It has a clue that points towards the big cache.
