Geocache Description:

A rocky outcrop with an awesome view of the canyon below and Otay Mountain beyond is the setting for this small black-painted Altoids tin that replaced the original Tupperware container that burned up in the fire of October 2007.

This cache, that holds some small swag and a log book, is located on a rocky outcrop that has a fantastic view to the south. Bring a picnic lunch and spend some time here enjoying the view.



Nearby, at approximately N32° 42.612 W116° 48.914, you will find the remains of a rock wall/dam and some water-smoothed rocks. It is worth checking out.

Access to the cache is from a narrow, 5-mph dirt road called Daley Truck Trail. It goes south off Lyons Valley Road at N32° 43.379 W116° 48.725. There is a place to park at N32° 42.732 W116° 48.969 before you get to a gate that has a "No Trespassing" sign.

EDIT: The last time I was in the area, the trail I describe in the original description, has been blocked with fencing. A short distance from the trail, you can still crawl through the fence.

The first part of the trail, which starts at N32° 42.719 W116° 48.968, is used by horses and it is narrow and eroded.

Once you get past that first bit, the trail is wide and easy to walk or ride a mountain bike on.

At the cache location, please be very careful. The rocks drop off very abruptly on the side opposite from the trail. I do not recommend trying this cache at night. Please watch out for snakes.
