Geocache Description:

The Mayor-Niles Forest, owned and managed by the Hanover Conservancy, is a forested parcel that cloaks the west slope of Moose Mountain just below the North Peak, connecting with the National Park Service lands surrounding the Appalachian Trail. The 92-acre property is the gift of Michael and Elizabeth Mayor and John Niles. The Mayor-Niles is open for people powered recreation of all types. An old tote path, possibly built by the International Paper Company when it owned the Moose Mountain Ridge, leads up through the property. The Plumber Hill Road, a Class VI road, forms one border runs along the northwest side of the property. The Appalachian Trail Corridor Boundary forms another (blazed in yellow) forms the east boundary. The forest is home to bear, moose,deer, grouse, porcupine, and many other kinds of wild life. Stone walls and the old road are reminders that a century ago, most of this land was a high sheep pasture. The coordinated should get you close enough to let your GeoSenses kick in. Bring your own writing implement. Please feel free to leave comments about your experience in the Cache log when logging your find or send them to the Hanover Conservancy.(
