Geocache Description:

This cache is hidden off of the Cabin Ridge Trail that is in the general are of the Noddle Heads. This is the eighth in a series of caches. In order to find this cache you must have found three of the first six caches in the series that have codes written in their lids that begin with 8. To figure out where this cache actually is, you must use the math below.

You can park at the posted coordinates and then hike about a mile and a quarter to the cache. Solve this puzzle to figure out where your actual destination is:

First, take the three numbers that begin with 8 from the other caches and discard the first digit (the 8) from each number resulting in three two digit numbers.

Add the smallest and middle numbers together and then reverse the digits to get xx. Add the smallest and largest numbers together and add 4 more to get yy. Then plug those numbers here:

N 39 19.xx8 W 105 6.yy8

You can check your answers for this puzzle on GeoChecker.com.


From the posted coordinates, head up trail 675. Soon, you will come to trail 674. Then at trail 653, leave the trail and stay on the ridge to get to the cache. The hike has a couple of steep spots but nothing too hard. The terrain for this cache is rated 2.5 just because of the hike.

Oh, and bring your own pen.


If you found and logged one of the first six caches but don't have the number from its lid, send me an email with your cacher id and I will provide the number free of charge.
