Geocache Description:

This cache is going to be retired soon (probably in January)

A medium cache located SOMEWHERE on the banks of the Credit River.

Note: The posted coordinates do NOT contain a cache! They only represent the theoretical midpoint of the various stages for this cache.

From it's headwaters near Orangeville to the mouth at Port Credit, this multi-cache will take you through the multiple parks that dot the Credit River. Each of the stages is a standalone cache and may be treated as such (trade and log). If you wish to find this cache, you must collect the secret from each of the stage caches (see links below). You can do the caches in any order, just ensure that you note the secret to the cache you found it in (see below). The secret is usually located on the inside of the cache lid.

The cache container is a clear tupperware type container (10" x 6" x 4") with a cream lid. Please ensure that the lid is fully seated when you are finished.

Please be cautious of the nearby Credit River!

Note: Some of the parks charge an access fee!

Write the secrets next to their respective caches in the tables below. Find the matching 3 digit number from the 'Secret Translation' table and write it in the designated spot in the table. Once you have all of the cache secrets, you can calculate the final cache coordinates as indicated in the tables.

Thank you to Olar for placing the stage cache at Ken Whillans for this project. He has also created a graphic which shows the area map with the stage locations indicated.
