Geocache Description:

"A pearl of wisdom is worth more than a diamond."— Blathers

Enjoy the easy multi-stage hike on the woodland trails at Hidden Pond Park. The trailhead coordinates will bring you close to Stage 1, not far from the Hidden Pond Nature Center where Blathers, an owl of science, studies the many fossils, fish, and bugs collected from this park. Use some stealth when retrieving the container, as some of the locations see lots of traffic, and cover it well when you replace it.
