Geocache Description:

This cache is located at Newman Overlook in the Cornell Plantations, one of the best views in Ithaca. We hid this cache in a small Tupperware container. The site is appropriate for children and pets.

This cache is located at Newman Overlook, one of the best views in Ithaca. The Newman Overlook is in the F.R. Newman Arboretum, which is part of the Cornell Plantations. The vista you see from the overlook was created when Fall Creek carved out a giant bowl 12,000 years ago. It is a great spot for playing Frisbee, going for a hike, romping with your dog (must be kept on a 10-foot leash), having a picnic and (in the winter) sledding (please be careful not to run into trees, DO NOT remove fencing). This cache is appropriate for children and pets. We hid this cache in a small Tupperware container. It is full of goodies from the Plantations. There is information about the Plantations and, in particular, this overlook inside. Please use the opportunity to explore this great resource. Since this cache is rather small, please bring small, flat items for it. NOTE: April 10 - We moved this cache about 50 feet to avoid muggles and water problems. Directions: take Route 366 towards Ithaca and make a right onto Forest Home Drive. When the road ends at a stop sign, turn left onto Caldwell Road. Make an immediate left onto Plantations Road to enter the Arboretum. Stay straight on this road, following signs to the Newman Overlook. The parking area is located at 42°27'10.1" N, 76°27'10.3"W
