Geocache Description:

This cache has been adopted by the Squirrel-Family. Our first cache! Mostly trails, some searching in the woods for an ammo can after a couple of kilometers of walking.

There are 3 ways to enter the trails to this cache. The one I like the most starts at a parking area near the Kyll River (N49-58.675, E006-34.435). It’s a pleasant walk into the woods and through a covered bridge.

Another starts just a kilometer up B-50 (N49-58.466, E006-33.441). It takes you past an outdoor chapel next to a waterfall. The downside to this trail is that it takes you right up someone's driveway and their dogs like to bark. They seem to be harmless, though.

The third entrance starts at a train station (N49-59.935, E006-34.288) and provides a nice walk by the river. You can find the trailhead at N49-59.876, E006-34.161. This trail is the most scenic but it's right next to the river and has a tendency to be blocked by obstacles from high water levels and fallen limbs. JUST CHECKED THIS TRAIL TODAY (1 JUNE 02) AND THE BRIDGE IS COMPLETELY GONE. PLEASE USE CAUTION OR USE ANOTHER ROUTE!

Contents: A ball of twine, 3 phone cords, a music CD, a wrist watch, 2 D cell batteries, 3 pumpkin ornaments, a small flower pot, and an electronic racing game.
