This cache is placed near a favorite local swimming hole in Henry Cowell State Park. It's also been known to be a spot for nude sun bathers in the off hours. I stayed hidden for as long as I could to catch a glimpse (I mean get good signal) for this spot. The cache is far enough from the beach area to grab with people present, but close enough for them to see if you are drawing attention to yourself.
The easiest route to this cache is about .7/mile one-way and it's pretty wide and flat. Parking for the trail head is at: 37º 01.859 / 122º 03.794. The last tenth of a mile is a little bit steep to get down the water but very easily traversed by all but the elderly or those with trouble walking on a little slope. Lots of tree roots and rocks make for nice steps, though.
There are other caches nearby so do your homework and grab more than one while here. Also, take some time to enjoy the spot. We placed this cache in the early morning and had the place to ourselves. Feel free to post pics of your Garden of Eden moment (within reason, of course).
Park hours are 6am - Sunset.
No dogs or bikes are allowed on the trails to this cache, sorry. Others in the park are and there is a mix of restrictions on the trails so plan accordingly. Since this cache is frequented by kids, you can plan on CITO (Cache in, Trash out). We picked up two 12-packs right under a sign that said "No garbage collection here", sheesh!
