Bald Peaks Traditional Geocache

This cache has been archived.

CKayaks: 11:14:00 AM

Out for a little cache retrieval exercise today. Did the loop from Casa Loma Trailhead > Serpentine Loop (now Little Llagas Creek Trail?) > Canada del Oro Cut-off > Bald Peaks > Catamount > Longwall Canyon > Casa Loma Entrance. 7.7 miles, 1742’ ascent.

Serpentine and the Cut-off trail were tick heaven! I stopped counting after picking off 25. Once I got on the higher trails, the little vampires dropped off and I only saw a few more up on Bald Peak. Beautiful day in the park otherwise. Had the place to myself until the last mile when I saw a gentleman on horseback.

Pulling my caches on the route. Archiving everything in my inventory as time allows. Too many hassles and too much whining from cachers. Verbal abuse in email and logs. Finds logged when they did not visit and sign. People celebrating the king of fake logs with events! And GS not providing any support when the CO tries to enforce the quality of his caches. Done.

My suggestions for anyone that has concerns with this approach:
* Help clean up the game by raising your concerns with Groundspeak. Let them know that bad behavior by players, cheating, allowing false finds, and such has degraded the game.
* Do the same with the cachers involved. Politely hold them accountable. Publicly, in some cases, if need be.

Geocache Description:

An ammo can a bit off trail at one of the more remote areas of Calero County Park.

Getting to this cache will involve some hiking with several major climbs and decents, but the views of the hills and valleys will be worth it. The main trail follows the ridge line, offering clear views to both the east and the west. When placed, thunderstorms were brewing over Coyote Valley. I felt I could reach out and touch the bases of the clouds.

The Rancho Canada del Oro Open Space Preserve (Info) is nearby if you would like additional challenges. Access to the Preserve is only via the nearby trail junctions.
