Geocache Description:

This cache is located on the Reserve of the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association in Hopewell Township. The 930-acre nature reserve is home to the Watershed Center, the Kate Gorrie Memorial Butterfly House, the Honey Brook Organic Farm, and almost 10 miles of trails. Park in one of several lots or near the trailhead provided.


The Watershed Reserve is open most days, dusk to dawn. It is closed for deer management briefly in the winter. The reserve offers a diversity of habitats including meadows, forests, wetlands, a small pond, streams and the Stony Brook. The reserve harbors a rich assortment of wildlife and plant life. Deer are abundant and other common mammals include meadow voles, shrews, bats, raccoon, skunk, opossum, red fox, squirrels and flying squirrels. Habitat diversity makes this an ideal place for birdwatching – watch for grassland species in the new grasslands, ducks at the pond, as well as herons, hawks, and owls, and much more. The Stony Brook offers some great scenery and wildlife watching opportunities.

This cache is located at the northern end of the Nature Reserve. It is located in a trailside bush house, a natural growth of shrubs that presents an invitation for entry. Like the forts of our childhood, bush houses offer the young and young at heart an escape and fertile ground for imagination. Enjoy!
