Geocache Description:

Red Rock Wilderness Overlook

The cache is not at the posted coordinates! However, the coordinates are near the overlook where you can enjoy an expansive view of the Potomac River. The difficulty and terrain ratings reflect the task of completing the Adventure Lab. 

Red Rock Wilderness Overlook Regional Park offers surprising history. The ruins date back to 1869. A wealthy gentleman farmer built the farm that now remains as historical ruins. The trees and the river are far older. The park also offers geocaching history, featuring two classic hides from September 2001. 

The adventure lab caches will take you on a tour of the park with some up and down mostly along the white trail that winds around the park. You might find it helpful to print a trail map to take along. Cachly offline trail maps are fairly complete. Others may be less complete. The waypoints of the adventure lab are waypoints in this cache in case it helps you navigate the park.
