Geocache Description:

Time to stretch the legs around the 8km Sawpit Gully track, and divert up German Hill to grab this Ammo Can cache at a height of 780m. Not your usual drive-by micro, this is old-school caching.

From the trailhead coordinates it's another 80 metres up, but worth it for the stunning views.  The previous time I was up here with Eldest (junior GSV team member) she suggested the spot needed a cache, and she was right.

If you're walking the full loop, it's best done counterclockwise and don't forget to check the old Stone Cottage ruins (and the cache there). Moderate fitness is required as this is an 8Km walk with 600m of vertical climb, but take your time and enjoy the countryside and views.

Slightly easier walking anti-clockwise. Get to the Big Hill turnoff and you'll see the track going up German Hill to the cache: home page For more information about geocaching in New Zealand,
