mvidberg: Visited cache today and found it vandalized and contents left lying around the ground. Area now has many "Private Property" signs up so I am deciding to close this cache.

Geocache Description:

This cache is a small Rubbermaid container. The co-ordinates above are for the parking area only.

You will be taking a long walk (about 860m from parking area) along the scenic Grand River. Closer parking can be found near stage 1, but I'll leave that for you to figure out if you want a shorter walk. There are plenty of benches along the way if you get tired. Walk until you get to the sign (N43° 22.495', W80° 20.044') close to the Devil's Creek Falls. Read the sign to find out how many metres the water plunges. The sign also explains why the area is called Devil's Creek.

Let "A" equal the number of metres the water plunges.

Next, keep walking along the trail, past the scenic lookout ramps to the ruins (N43° 22.513', W80° 19.697') of an old house. Count the number of windows in both ruin structures here.

Let "B" equal the total number of windows in both structures.

Now, calculate the final position of the cache as follows:

XXX = 471 + A
YYY = 756 + B

The cache is here:

N43° 22.XXX'
W80° 19.YYY'

The last few metres approaching the cache can be tricky. Be careful. Please replace the rock(s) when putting the cache back.
