Ready to step into the shoes of our park employees, and try YOUR hand at managing Everglades National Park? This cache is a golden opportunity to do just that! The Park Employee for a Day geocache trail is comprised of five caches (including this one) that follow the path of the main park road towards Flamingo. Like the others, this is a traditional cache, which contains a particular case study that requires your attention...
For 100 years, the National Park Service has preserved America’s special places “for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.” Celebrate its second century with the Find Your Park GeoTour that launched April 2016 and explore these geocaches placed for you by National Park Service Rangers and their partners.
Finding this cache will require an enjoyable stroll along a scenic shoreline trail. Enjoy the breeze, catch a view of birds feeding on the flats and—most importantly—note how close you are to the water’s edge! Your search will not only bring you to the southernmost geocache on the US mainland, but will ultimately have you to considering the costs of beach-front access.
Parking is available at both ends of the trail. Be sure to store all valuables and lock your vehicle before departing. Finding this cache will require a short walk off-trail, so be sure to watch your footing. Remember to survey the scene for snakes, insects and other wildlife before reaching for the cache. And please don’t forget to share your thoughts when you log your find.
Please Note: this geocache has been developed by Everglades National Park for the enjoyment of visitors. The placement of caches on lands managed by the National Park Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service remains generally prohibited.
