Geocache Description:

CAUTION! Rattlesnakes and Poison Oak are common in this preserve. Be Alert!
NOTICE: The OSP is open from from dawn until one-half hour after sunset.
Please respect the OSP hours and cache only during these times.
If you park in the County parking lots, then start time is 8:00 am.

Located near the Chamise Trail in Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve. About 2.4 miles from the lower parking lot, with a 250 foot elevation rise.
Cache is a 3.5 by 5.5 inch round plastic jar in camo tape. The last 50 feet or so to the cache are steep, otherwise the terrain rating would be lower. No bushwacking necessary.

There were better hiding places, but the one I picked had no obvious poison oak.

10/11/04 - slight change in coordinates due to cache migration to a better place. A rattlesnake has been observed in the area. Look before sticking your hand in the bushes!

Thanks to Marky & Joani for the "Make A Cache" kit.
