Geocache Description:

Two stage multi.  Two main choices on approach.  One approach is approximately 1 mile round trip, the other is approximately 2 miles.


I had planned out most of a six or seven stage multi around LakeWhitehall, but when I explored the area for this stage I thought it deserved to stand on its own.

UPDATE 1/16/06: The previously referenced ‘ol stick in the mud is currently not visible.  The instructions below are modified and accurate.

INSTRUCTIONS: Park.  Find regulation #10 on the sign on the yellow gate.  Multiply the number in regulation #10 by 83.334.  Subtract the result from 4490 to get NNNN.  Take the same result and add it to 3438 to get WWWW.  Proceed to 42 1N.NNN 71 3W.WWW.

The cache site can be reached by land, sea, or frozen sea (ice conditions are sometimes posted at the listed coords).  If you chose to go by land, you can cross the dam and take the blue trail (the longer route) or seek out another parking spot that will get you within .37 miles of the cache.  The cache is a plastic peanut butter jar, so small trade items only please.

Lake Whitehall State Park’s blue trail can be taken completely around the lake.  For this cache, the trail can take you close to 1 or 2 backyards of nearby residents, but does not go through any and is well marked.  More info about the lake and its trails can be found at http://www.lakewhitehall.org/index.cfm
