Geocache Description:

This cache is a MULTI, but don't think it'll take all day.It is only 2 steps. However do be aware that this is a very difficult hike, taking the place of "Are you affraid of the dark" which was destroyed, and archived, a short while back.

"Wow! Talk about the perfect cache! It had everything! [...] Quite possibly my new favourite cache! "-Crash #1


"COOL FALLS!!!" -TURNING LEAF


"Great workout!" -Wildwilly


As I said, two stages are all you'll need for this cache. Find a mini, then the real cache. Sounds simple doesn't it... well let me explain why it isn't by telling you step by step how to complete this cache...

Step 1) Park at the Morningstar Mill and start hiking into the Mountain Mills Park (Via the Bruce). Follow this until you come upon a rope on the slope to your left. (To be sure it is the right place to get down look at the trees on the opposite side of the trail, they have orange paint on them.)

Step 2) Climb down the hill/cliff. And I don't mean climb as in scamper down a hill, I mean CLIMB like the way you would a tree.

Step 3) Follow the trail east, or towards the UpperFalls. This will bring you past a man-made falls which creates a river that you will need to hop across.

Step 4) Once across the river there is a tall hill. Climb it to the summit where you will find a Tunnel. (This cache is not IN the tunnel like "Are you affraid of the dark" was, so don't go in there looking for it.)

This step brings you to the top of the hill with a spectacular view of the Upper Falls. Take a rest on a flat rock that you should find at the coordinates above.(Check the picture below if you are still lost.) While your taking a rest on this rock take a peak under it, pull out some other rocks and remove the Green container.

BEWARE OF MUGGLES!!!

In the container is a bunch of cards. Take a card and read the coordinates. (If U can don't TAKE the card with you, though I have made a few of them for those who can't transfer the coordinates, or those who are just to lazy to type it into there GPS's on the spot)This container is a mini, though it can still fit some small items (Keychains, geocoins, buttons...) So feel free to trade something small here. Keep the big stuff for the final.And we continue

Step 5) With the new coordinates noted find your way back up to the Bruce.

Step 6) Follow the coordinates to the Final. That's all you get for the Final.
If you NEED more consult the Hints or the Spoiler pictures ...

Have fun, and BE CAREFUL!

(Also bring a flash light and boots with you if you are interested in exploring the tunnel.)
