Geocache Description:

Cavort with the turkey vultures on this spectacular ledge high above Roaring Brook. Good vistas in all directions on the way up. CACHE IS NOT ANYWHERE NEAR THE EDGE OF THE CLIFF.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE NOVEMBER 06, 2006 Cache is now an ammo can. It took me about 35 steps at a 100 degrees from the rock (coor's listed above) Please visit the original co-ordinates to see the vista, the go to these to find the cache. N41. 24. 291 W 075. 34. 545 Best parking is in the vacant lot across from the Holiday Inn in Dunmore at N 41.24.876, W 75.35.965. No bushwhacking involved if you park here. When you finally reach the view, enjoy the view and the vultures, head to the very large overhanging boulder in the distance on a trail above you. Go there, stand on it facing the view, then walk 35 steps at 100 degrees from north on a compass to a big flat rock you can easily stand on and there you are. (The cache is well removed from the edge of the ledge.) Enjoy.

You can access the unmarked but excellent quad trails by going through the gate at the reservoir and turning right at the breast of the dam. You will have many, many choices. Just keep going straight "up". Parts of this walk will be on the old gravity railroad bed, active in the 1800's. There are plenty of possible loops here. Dusky skippers and spring azures led me all the way up. A towhee greeted me at the top with his "to eat, to eat, to eat."

SOME OTHER INTERESTING POINTS

An interesting stop along the way can be accessed by finding a BIG cairn (which is pretty interesting itself) at N41.24.285, W 75.35.010. Just a little further is a solstice seat at N41.24.537, W 75.34.834. You can dance with the druids here. At their fireplace, go a few feet at 210 degrees to find an easy trail out of the maze.
