Geocache Description:

The trailhead is at a cul-de-sac at the end of Purington. Unfortunately, there is no parking in the cul-de-sac. Park on Ridge Road, instead. This is a small peninsula with steep dirt bluffs on either side. Both legs of this multipart cache are on the upper level. There are several trails to the lake. Please use caution to minimize erosion.

This little enclave is used as a fishing site for many of the kids in the area. It is also a popular dog walking area. The cache is far enough out of the way that you should able to get to it with minimal stealth. There is a wonderful view, once you get to the marker. This is surrounded by private land, so watch for boundaries.


The first benchmark is a 3" survey marker with the marking "CM N". The cache is located as far along a heading of 238 ° Magnetic as you can reasonably follow from the marker.


The marker will not be visible in winter as it will most likely be under the snow. You can use the spoiler to find the final cache, with minimal search time.


Initial contents: Log Book, pencil, can opener key ring, Polaroid flashlight, Wheaties MatchBook Nascar. finger clacker.


Warning: Muggles and Pooch Mines. Also, Poison Ivy has been known to set up  housekeeping in the area - so be careful.
