Geocache Description:

Between north and south Beacon Mountains, under a large boulder

Container is a rubbermaid type clear box w/ blue lid. Duct taped the top of the lid were there were some holes. Contains a log book, disposable camera, and a few goodies we picked up at Wal-mart. If you find this one and 'Race you to the Top' you will have an all day hike to do. You will probably need to view the hints as it is not in plane sight.

Easiest start is from Mountain ave in Beacon (N41 29.886 W73 56.969) but it is not a pretty hike. Better is starting from Hwy 9d and Howland St and Judson St, N41 29.639 W73 57.593. Best, is doing a day long hike from the end os Sunnyside St. in Glenham at N41 30.428 W73 55.753, so you can get 2 caches for the price of one.

After finding the cache, continue to the tower. It is a great place for lunch. Those who are extremly brave, can climb what reamins of the tower. The structure is solid, but many of the floor boards are gone.
