Geocache Description:

Mind My Major Mostly Minor Mica Mining Madness

This 2 stage multi cache is located in the northern Bethel part of Huntington State Park in an abandoned open pit mica mine. Park at 41° 20.742 / 73° 21.734 off Dodgingtown Rd. Distance to final cache is 1.3 km one way, following the blue trail in a northerly direction. No bushwacking required. Trail is well defined most of the way, suitable for mountain bikes and x-country ski. Foot of snow not a problem.

1st stage : coordinates listed above are for 1st micro cache. It is not a container, no logging possible or required, however you need to find coordinates posted for finding 2nd final cache. A good sign is the ability to nail sighting a posting.

2nd stage : This cache is a standard 50 cal amo can, olive, filled with stuff for both old and young, and a first finders prize, plus my first travel bug.
Think Mostly Minor Micro Mica Mine
While on site, explore this interesting area, find natural stone bridge and check out open pits with mica scattered about , 200 or more feet south of bridge.
