Geocache Description:

Located within the 150 acres of George C. Waldo State Park.

Parking is at the coordinates listed for the cache.
An unimproved road runs 3/4 mile from the parking area to the lake at
N 41 24.617 W 73 17.788
Lakeside access for boaters is from this set of numbers.
From this area a path runs along the lake both north and south. The cache stages are nowhere near this path.

Park rules: NO SWIMMING, camping or ground fires. As usual don't block the gate.
The fishing is good, and there is plenty of space for picknicking near the lake.
There are mountain bike trails meandering all about.
There are deer in this park, archery hunting for them is allowed in season.
I found three ticks crawling up my legs on one visit, so do the bug spray/tick check thing.

To find the cache locate both micro's. Each contains 1/2 the numbers for the final cache, a 30cal. ammo box hidden in the typical New England way. There are some steep dropoffs in the area of the final.

Location for the micros are:

#1 N41 27.634 W73 17.301
#2 N41 27.514 W73 17.324

An interesting outcroppings of Quartz can be found the area of micro #1, and there is a nice view from the stone wall south of micro #2.

There are CITO bags in the cache. Let me know if more are needed.

Winter information.
Micros will be tough if there's more than a dusting.
The final will depend on how the wind blows the snow around.
