How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Alum Park is open all year. Hours are 8:00 a.m. until one-half hour after sunset. $6 parking fees are collected on weekends and holidays, and daily from mid-June through Labor Day (free if parking just at the main entrance and hiking in). Pets are not permitted in the park.

As noted on park signs here in Alum Rock or any Bay Area parks, please be careful not to poke around anywhere where rattlesnakes may be hiding. Always use caution, perhaps carry hiking sticks and teach the kids to learn where not to play/hunt and be safe.

This location can be reached by either the gradual climb on the paved service road or from one of the lower trails. At the top of Inspiration Point is a fenced area where one can take a rest on the three red benches and enjoy the quiet and surrounding views.

Cache is just slightly off the trail, an easy find.

Bonus "brownie" points if you find a nearby stone with two names and a date stamped on it. Maybe someone got engaged here? Well, that's my romantic notion and the view may certainly inspire someone!
