Geocache Description:

This cache is located in a less visited section of Washington's Crossing State Park in Hopewell Township. The park is open from dawn to dusk. The cache is a two part multi with a field puzzle at the first stage. Solve the puzzle and then go find the small sized final located elsewhere in the park.

The Wicked Witch of the West has stolen a geocache and hidden it somewhere in OZ (i.e., Washington Crossing State Park). The Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion determined the location of the cache but were unable to retrieve it due to the witch's evil minions. The Great OZ seeks a hero to retrieve (i.e., log) the stolen cache. The Great OZ has placed the final coordinates deep in the Emerald Forest, encryped in a puzzle that only a worthy hero can decipher. Your mission is to go Over the Rainbow to OZ, solve the puzzle, and find the stolen cache. are not in Kansas anymore.

When you solve the puzzle, you will get a number as ABCXYZ. The checksum for this number is 22.
The final coordinates are N40-18.ABC W074-52.XYZ.

NOTE: You can stay on trails until the final hundred feet. Look for a little side trail about 350 feet from the final. This will help you avoid a miserable bushwack.
