Geocache Description:

This one is dedicated to Tomulus, who introduced us to this area with this cache: GCTVK0

Simple hide in the woods, nothing particularly special about this one except the location.

Take a lovely walk through a lesser trafficed portion of the woods surrounding Liberty Reservoir.  Fire road most of the the way in, with a short bushwhack at the end.  Note that you'll have to make the correct choices at a couple of forks.  Shortest route is from the parking area at the end of Bollinger Mill Rd.  For those who'd like a longer hike,  you could come in from just north of the bridge on MD 32.

An approach by boat is possible, there are boat launches on the reservoir, but you may have something of an uphill scramble when you land to find the cache.  An aerial approach (rapelling from helo or hot air balloon, or parachuting in) is discouraged due to tree cover.  The terrain ratings are based on approaching by foot.

WARNING: From September to January this is very active deer hunting territory. Take all necessary precautions when entering and searching this area.

As with all your searches, please do some research, and use good voyage planning techniques. Know your limitations, employ risk management, and don’t take on something that is beyond your capability. Some of you do this all the time, some rarely; in the end, it is you who are accountable for what happens to you, mentally, emotionally and physically as the result of seeking this hide.
