Geocache Description:

The coordinates above will lead you to a prominent rock located in Sackett Preserve in Wilton. Surrounding the rock at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock are four micros which hold part of the coordinates to the final cache. The micros at 12 and 6 o'clock are the furthest away from the rock at approximately twenty-five paces. A compass will help in your serach. Please replace the micros as found.

There are two accesses to Sackett Preserve. The main trail head is located off Ridgefield Road just south of DeForest Road. The parking area is set back from the road (look for sign). The second access is through the adjacent Marble Van Haelewyn - Richards Preserve. The trail head for this preserve is located at the end of Abbott Lane. There is a small wet area you will need to navigate in order to find the rock if you use the trail head off Ridgefield Road. The trails are marked but not as well traveled as some of the other preserves in the area. The final cache is a tupperware container that has trade items. The FTF prize is a Wooden "Ax" Nickel that will give you a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Groundspeak. Check out the Double Tree cache in these preserves. Good Luck! NOTE (11/5/07): PRESERVE CLOSED WEEK DAYS DURING HUNTING SEASON.
