A very easy and pleasant cache located in Hidden Valley Park, Waterdown. The path is well maintained and the cache location is easy to find if you know to look for it. The overall length of the cache is 360 meters in, so under a kilometer round trip.
The cache was placed in this great oasis for those geocachers that like to go out hiking with the whole family. For those of you that have done some of mine, you'll know I can go extreme...this is definately a family cache!
The park has a trail running right through it following a small creek that eventually flows into Hamilton Harbour.
If you have the time, it would be a great spot to stop for a picnic which was the theme for the cache name.
The coordinates above are only parking coordinates, because the actual cache location is within 100 meters of another road I decided to make you still walk the 360...afterall if you wanted to race through it you'd still do this in 10 minutes or less.
When you get to the parking coordinates look for a sign with a number on it...the sign is located at:
N 43 18.186
W 079 51.794
Take the number and divide by 10, then subtract it to both of the minutes for both longitude and latitude listed below to find the final cache.
N 43 18.848
W 079 52.803
Good luck and enjoy the park!
