Geocache Description:

This Cache is Located on the Trail to Stanleyville, which begins at the Lomond Campground on the scenic west coast of Newfoundland.

This Cache is Located on the Trail to Stanleyville. The Trail begins at the Day use area in the Lomond Campground on the scenic West coast of Newfoundland. The view of the mountains is incredible. At the beginning of the trail be sure to grab a bucket of sand to help with the building of the trail! :) Follow the trail along past the waterfalls, and up the many steps. The cache is located a third of the way along the trail in a black cyclinder tube, with screw off ends. If you continue along the trail it takes you to the small logging community of Stanleywille active in the early 1900's.

This cache is named because of a Woodpecker known as a Flicker drumming on the tree when we placed the cache.

At the time of Placing the cache it contained:
Notebook & Pencil with Eraser.
2 Dinosaurs
1 Tea light
1 Parashute man
1 Eraser
1 Polished hemotite nugget
1 Geode
1 Rose Quartz

Happy Hunting, Hope you enjoy the Hike and the Incredible view of the Mountains.

Michelle, Tom & Lewis

  • The cache in it's fancy new containerAs part of our cache maintenance we Built a new "water tight" container. It is a section of plastic sewer pipe (unused) with a screw off cap at each end. We hope that this will keep the water out. ##It has been reported that the container is hard to open, The cap is in two parts, the section with ridges which does not turn and the section with the square knob, this does turn. My suggestion would be to hold both ends and twist, one should come off.
