Fallin' For Virginia IV - Garrett Creek Traditional Geocache
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Off Rich Valley Road out of Abingdon, VA. Fairly easy find. Short (50 feet) steep trail to cache.
Welcome to our continuing Fallin' For Virginia series of caches. This cache is the beautiful Garrett Creek Waterfalls. The falls are about 40 foot high and 40 foot wide. Park at the wide spot in the road on the left hand side at the given coordinates. Coordinates are not super accurate due to being in a narrow valley. Best accuracy obtained was 29 feet. Nothing real dangerous here but don't pull you car too far off the road and when going to the top of the falls (to find the cache), don't fall over the edge. After finding the cache, you may want to walk down the road a bit to get a better view of the falls. Many thanks to the owner of this property for granting permission. Out of respect and thanks to Mr. Mullins, please use CITO. Not reccomended for very small children. Enjoy Nature's beauty and have a good caching day. Bring your camera. Please put cache container back exactly as you found it.
NOTE: On June 20, 2006 we replaced the muggled cache. New container is a bit smaller and is a 6 inch diameter round rubbermaid box. Room for small trade items. Kept same coordinates but moved cache 30 feet up (falls) trail from the old spot. You may need to use new hints.
