Geocache Description:


NOTE: Best parking for the cache is located nearby at N 33°21.932', W 097°35.011' . Approach from the south on an unnamed gravel road (possibly called 904) off of County Road 2461 at N 33°21.324', W 097°34.621'.

This is the second oldest active cache in the state of Texas. It was the 152nd geocache hidden in the world and is now on its 6th container and 4th owner, but has survived despite a direct hit from a lightening strike, animal sabotage and controlled burns.

This cache is more than 18+ years old and is a relic of the very early days of geocaching! You are looking for an ammo can hidden on a bluff with a fantastic view of the surrounding area.

The original cache description:

Placed by The Mad Phishmonger, and M. Leprechaun
N 33° 21.955 W 097° 34.929
Located in the LBJ National Grasslands. The grasslands have a trail system that allows equestrian riding (the most popular activity), hunting in season(second most popular), hiking and mountain biking (it's usually too sandy for that though).
