Geocache Description:

IMPORTANT NOTES. This cache is located on the Edison Sparta Mountain Wildlife Management Area. As such, please be aware of hunting season and wear bright colors if you are hiking during the various hunting seasons (typically end of September through early January). Also be aware that Sussex County New Jersey has many bears and poisonous snakes. Be alert! If you know what to do if you have an encounter, you will enjoy exploring one of the greatest natural resources in the Northeast.

My quest to use cache placement to link the Highlands Trail ran into a bit of a major obstacle - a river with few crossing spots. So while bushwacking up and down the river side, I found this spot. It fit well with my Bridge Out cache theme so I couldn't pass it up.

This is a MICRO placed very similarly to TRL Highlands Hike. If you haven't done that cache, start with that one so you have the format as it is the same size and shape. If you don't, your probability of frustration might be higher. Particularly as your need to bushwack to get to this spot is likely substantial unless you happen upon one key route.

The spot is incredible and rather substantial. You wonder where the thruway it supported went as Glen Road was built right over it going the other direction. Speaking of Glen Road, don't stop thinking this is a drive and dump because the cache is on the NORTH side of the river. You'll have to think of another way in.

Good Luck!
