This is the second home for this cache. Its first home was between Elk Lake and Matachewan in Northern Ont. and placed on July 4th. 2002. Its new home is just off of Highway 97 between Kitchener and Cambridge. The cache is hidden on the Dryden Tract. From the parking lot to the cache it is 1km as the crow flies. There are numerous trails so mark your route. Also with the leaves on the ground the trails are well covered and the small trails are hard to make out.
You will need to get 3 numbers to help with the final co-ordinates to the cache. There is a small marker on a stone between the two parking lots that gives some history about this track. Add the 3 numbers together and than add this to the N and W co-ordinates. There is a bench that over looks a small marsh at the base of the hill and the surrounding farm land.
When you reach this point you are near the cache hiding spot.
