Geocache Description:

Young MacDonald is a bit nimbler on his feet than the Old Man, and can hike a bit further. At the posted coordinates, you will find the newly constructed Naturalist Center (a block house). To determine where to go next, you will have to count a bit:

A is the number of glass panes in the front door
B is the number of glass panes in one of the windows
C is the number of windows on the building front
D is the number of windows on left side of the building
E is the number pillars/columns that support the front porch roof

Checksum: A+B+C+D+E is 21

Your next statge is at N 41° 16.(D)(B-1)(E-2)     W 73° 44.(D)(A-1)(C+5). You can follow the YELLOW trail to the next stage. Take note that there are TWO yellow trails from where you stand. It is the same trail, after all, but not necessarily the same distance to the final :). To find Young MacDonald sooner, I would recommend to pick the yellow trail that heads from here towards the left, in the general direction of Old MacDonald, and then switch to the blue trail.

Muscoot County Park is open every day except Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Opening hours are 10am - 4pm. If you are early or late, you are trespassing, and yes, they have no qualms to lock the gate at 4pm, even if your car is still on the lot. Also note that "in season", a so-called "deer management program" (DMP) is in effect. The deer union doesn't seem to have much of a voice, but I hear they object to their management carrying rifles.
