South Mountain County Park consists of 239 acres of mountainous terrain. The ridge, traversed by the Long Path is part of the Palisades escarpment, which ends at Route 45. A number of scenic views overlook Haverstraw and the Hudson River; Mt. Ivy and Thiells; Clarkstown and Orangetown. The land is covered with a mature stand of hardwood trees. The ridge lacks large water retention areas with most of the precipitation absorbed locally or shed down the heavily wooded slope. Trees include Black Oak, White Oak, Red Oak, Dogwood, Aspen, Tulip, Hemlock, Red Cedar, and Sumac. In season there are blueberries, wild grapes and raspberries, but please, the berries are for the birds.
The cache is on the Long Path. From the parking area the Long Path is to the right of the gravel road. Please make sure the cache is covered well.
This cache has permit # 039 from the Rockland County Parks Department.
