Geocache Description:

This is a Virtual cache. You will need to answer 2 question to get credit for this find. Questions will be listed below.

First off this is in Greatfalls Park in Great Falls Va. There is a Park fee ($3.00 for Walk or Bike in, $5 for cars, $20 Annual Pass) to be paid and the pass is good for 3 days and will also allow you to visit the MD side of Great Falls.

This is not a Night Friendly cache as the park closes at Dark and opens at 7:00am Pets are welcome but must be leashed.

For some interesting info on the falls visit National Park Service - Great Falls

I was surprised to find there there was not a Virtual cache here as the views and attractions here are great. I suggest buying a year pass.


Well after much work the new Overlooks are done! They are awsome, they have gotten rid of the link fence and made nice Stone and woods barriers. So I have re done parts of this cache and updated coordants.

You will want to start from the listed coords: N 38 59.787 W 77 15.210 This is Over Look 1 From here enjoy the view !

This is just a taste of the kind of views you can have at the park. Please Enjoy.

Now on to the caching !

From Overlook 1 you will need to goto over look 3 at : N 38 59.714 W 77 15.184

While walking from OL1, OL2 and OL3 you will need to find answers to these 2 questions :

#1 - At average flow levels how deep are the pools ?

#2 - Add up the total of the years on the flood marker near OL3

Email me the answers and enjoy a great day in the park.
