Geocache Description:

I've passed these ruins many times and never stopped by to really examine them. I finally did and decided it would be a great place for a cache. From what I've heard and according to one hiking map I have, these are the remains of a long abandoned goat farm.

Best place to park is at the Ramapo Valley Reservation parking lot on route 202 in Mahwah. These ruins are very close to the Yellow/Silver trail. NYNJTC trail map #22 could come in handy.

Please re-hide it in as natural looking manner as possible. This spot gets a lot of visitors who like to explore.

Note: There is no parking at the end of Bear Swamp Road, but you may be able to find a spot at a turnout on 202 and walk up Bear Swamp Road from there.
