En route from Ives24, turn right to follow the Old Post Road for about 340' before the Ives Trail turns left
The cache is immediately before the plunge and steep climb to reach Tarrywile Park
LSOT Be careful if accompanied by children.
Now it's time for someone else to place caches on the Ives Trail, particularly south of Tarrywile. I can't adequately maintain any more, but I can offer suggestions for cache names in the same spirit as Ives1-25, should anyone be interested.
The Ives Trail Greenway is a regional trail that links open spaces in Bethel, Danbury, Redding and Ridgefield.
The trail extends twenty miles, from Redding Open Space to Terre Haute in Bethel, northwest to Rogers Park in Danbury, past the Charles Ives Homestead, and then south thru Tarrywile Park.
It then continues southwest across Route 7 and through Wooster Mountain State Park to Ridgefield's Pine Mountain Open Space and Bennetts Pond State Park.
The Ives Trail is named in honor of Charles Ives who was born in Danbury in 1874. Ives blended classical music with Americana to create a new style of music and is noted for his original classical compositions, winning the Pulitzer prize in 1947 for his Symphony #3. Ives is Connecticut's state composer.
The trail visits his birthplace home and a mountain retreat area where he often composed.
