This cache is NOT located at street level. It's up on the Metropolitan Branch Trail, a fantastic bike thoroughfare. From the cache location, you'll have a breathtaking view of REAL Wasingtonians going about their business as busy commuters. There's always somewhere to go, and if you're going somewhere, the Metro platform is the place to be.
If you're coming from the Metro, take the north station exit to 2nd Ave. NE. From outside the station, take the stairs up from 2nd Ave.
There's some parking on 2nd Ave., but depending on what time of day it might be very busy.
Please be careful of muggles, and be aware of bicycles coming down the trail!
