Geocache Description:

A beautiful walk along Douglas Path which runs along the ridge of the Rock of Gibraltar. The cache is located at a WWII observation post. Because of its strategic position with its all-round view, this was the Fortress Commander's Command Post.



This cache is accesible on foot. It is only a small detour off the main road linking the Cable Car Upper Station and St Michael's Cave. If you are driving in your own car you will have to park at St Michael's Cave and walk up, which in itself is a beautiful  and peaceful trip. You will also be able to see apes in this area. Because you are in the Upper Rock Nature Reserve this cache is only accessible during daylight hours.



Un hermoso paseo a lo largo de Douglas Camino que recorre la cresta del Peñón de Gibraltar. El caché se encuentra en un puesto de observación de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.
Esta caché es accesible a pie. Es sólo un pequeño desvío de la carretera principal que une la Estación Superior del Teleférico y la Cueva de San Miguel. Si usted está en su propio coche, tendrá que aparcar en la Cueva de San Miguel y caminar, lo cual en sí mismo es un paseo hermoso y tranquilo. Usted también será capaz de ver los monos en este ámbito. Debido a que se encuentra en la Reserva del Peñón de Gibraltar, esta caché sólo se puede acceder durante las horas del día.
