A short walk through the forest. About 20m off trail.

An urban white pine and cedar forest. The cache is in the old cedar section.

You are looking for a small round authentic 3 oz. Lock & Lock container. About 15 meters from the trail that runs through the old cedar forest section. The trail runs close to the Hanlon creek. There's a trail that runs parallel to this one and goes through the white pine section of the forest. It will be a 60m bushwack from that trail. The white pine trail connects to the old cedar trail in loop fashion.

Park at Ptarmigan and take the middle trail to the cache. Through white pine forest - most dry, less vegetation.

A good place to walk with your dog. Expect off leash dogs in the area.
