How Geocaching Works

This is an old-fashioned Multi. It takes a decent hike, and a number of stages along the way, to get to the final. Babcock Preserve has many outstanding trails that pass through a variety of ecosystems, from arid hilltops to bottomless bogs. Depending on which trail you take, you should expect at least a 3 mile hike to circle back to the posted parking coordinates. A trail map is available from the Town of Greenwich website (PDF). Given the somewhat unmarked and twisting nature of the trails in this preserve, I suggest you bring a printed copy of the map, and turn on the tracking log on your GPS. Remember that it is kinda embarrassing to be able to find a cache, but not back to your car :).
Hints for the Stages:
Stage 1: Hanging off a little tree growing at the foot of a fallen
Stage 2: Hanging off a mature mountain laurel
Stage 3: Hanging and tucked in
Final : Under solitary rock
No need to bushwhack, all stages and final are within 30ft or so of a hiking trail.
The cache got its name from an ancient horseshoe that I found not too far from the final. It is now in the cache. Please leave it there!
