Geocache Description:

This cache is an ammo can hidden in the beautiful woodlands of the Rockefeller State Park Preserve in Westchester County, NY.


The Rockefeller State Park Preserve, among some circles, is referred to simply as "The Rockies".

 

The Rockies are a 1,400 acre gem in Westchester's Pocantico Hills.  Once part of the Rockefeller Family Estate, this incredible preserve and its network of carriage trails built by John D. Rockefeller Jr. are open to the public for walking, running, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and horseback riding.  No bikes are allowed but dogs ON LEASHES are welcome.  Enjoy the forests and meadows here - it's a fantastic place!

 

This cache is hidden in the northern part of the main park in the area of the Pocantico River Trail and the Thirteen Bridges Loop.  Below are links to trail maps.  This cache can be approached from different angles but the easiest approach is to follow the carriage trails until you spy a forest trail (that is, a trail more typical of a hiking trail as opposed to the wide, well maintained carriage trails) running off into the woods in a southerly direction.  This is one of the very few forest trails in this park.  It is mainly used as an equestrian jump trail. If found, this trail will lead you to close proximity of the cache site.

 

Good luck!
