Geocache Description:

Located in the very scenic Forks of the Credit River within earshot of the Cataract.

This was the first hike we took Hannah (16 months) - see attached picture. Hannah really enjoyed the afternoon despite the cold weather with the little bit of wet snow. She particularly liked it on the way there when Dad was driving quickly over the hills on Forks of the Credit Rd - although Mum found that part less enjoyable and Dad got a punch in the arm. At the park, Hannah was quite happy to be pushed up one big hill in the stroller and carried back down the many stairs when we were heading back towards the car. Hannah instructed Dad to re-hide the cache container away from the steep and slippery hill and in a safer place.

The geocache is well hidden and we ask that you re-stash it well as it is not far from the trail. As the grass grows it will be hidden better, but there's always next fall.

We started out from N43 48.744 W80 01.663 to place the cache and followed the Meadow Trail making a circuitous route. However, we saw many more people parking at N43 48.165 W79 59.668 to pick up a trail that I've been told will also provide access - albeit via the Bruce Trail. Another possible, and perhaps more official, starting point is N43 49.500 W80 00.252. When I went to re-hide the cache I started from N43 50.152 W80 01.387 and walked down the railway tracks. They actually provide a very good view of the cataract falls and the old, and very dilapidated, hydro generating station. The rust on the tracks leads me to believe they see little use and the overall condition of the ties and rails tell me trains don't do any kind of speed through this area. Any way you slice it, you're looking at a hike of at least 1 mile to get to the cache.

Additional Hints (Encrypt)

Look for yellow container at base of conifer.
