Geocache Description:

An easy offset cache along the the old Putnam Division of the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad right of way. It is now the South County Trailway recreational path and popular with bikers, joggers and rollerbladers. Be sure to check out the remains of Chauncy Station nearby.

The posted coordinates will direct you to an historical marker commemorating the "Old Put" rail line. Read the marker to find the year passenger service started on "Old Put" and add it to 4057505 to obtain the cache's N coordinates and add the year passenger service ended to 7349866 to obtain the W coordinates.

The cache is in a decon box, which is slightly larger than a pack of cigarettes, so don't bring anything large to exchange. Because the cache is near a popular path, be careful while searching.
