Geocache Description:

(epe 15.9 feet)

Difficulty factor: Either a 1 or a 2 depending on the route chosen.


Original description: We discovered that this one can be approached either from the top or the bottom of the mountain. If you come down from the top, you will seriously want to go all the way to the bottom of the trail whether you find the stash or not. And bring flashlights to explore a piece of forgotten Georgia history! From the bottom, if the road is open the terrain rating is a 1. Coming from the top, it's a 3. So I gave it an average of 2... Notice... The cache was replaced 28 Sept 03 and is now in a 3"x2.5' long olive drab mortar tube and has been relocated to it's original position above the pool. I'm still looking for the original. There isn't much in it yet as I am looking for a source of cheap lights for the best part of the cache. If you come in from the top, beware of the butt surfing opportunities and keep heading down the trail after you find the cache. (*) technicolor rump syndrome today...

Update: Being that this is one of the oldest Geocaches around, I try not to change it much, but a few notes... 1) Do not approach from the top. Use the parking coordinates and only approach from the bottom. Unfriendly-types live at the top and don't appreciate Geocachers parking in on "their" road. 2) I changed the terrain rating of this from the original 2 to a 4. This reflects modern expectations of Geocachers.
