Geocache Description:


The cache is located in the Horace A. Hurd Memorial Forest in Berwick, Maine. It is possible to park at the trailhead, but I've provided parking coordinates for a paved spot next to a guardrail that is approximately 500 feet down the road (Rt. 9), where parking may be a bit easier. This is a nice forest that seems to get few visitors. Follow the trail. Terrain is flat and dry, trail is fairly easy to follow. The pines referred to in the cache name are small trees. When you see these pines, which are on both sides of the trail, you're near the cache. It's a fliplock container (about 2X3X4 inches in size) Note added on 6/26/16: This cache requires walking through areas that are most likely infested with ticks. Caution is advised.

Note added 6/1/24: Not as many pines as there used to be. Also the trail has grown in some over the past few years and there is a clearing where the trail disappears. On the far side of the clearing take the leftmost trail.
