Geocache Description:

Guard Hill Summit is a small tract of public land located off of West Patent Road in Mt. Kisco. The small parking area is not easy to spot. There is a big brass placard attached to a large boulder at the parking area, and a large wooden sign with "Guard Hill Park" on it. The walk should easily take under an hour.

The trail is blazed with plastic yellow squares. When you get to about 250 feet from the cache you have two choices. Option one is to leave the trail early, and bushwack up, up, up the rocky slope to the cache. Option two is to continue along the trail as it brings you out to the edge of the field. The trail will turn right. You can continue straight along the edge of the field and then onto an access road up to the cache. I would suggest option two. The view from the ridgeline is quite nice. (Especially at sunset!) While the area is not marked with blazes, it is still public property. The field is not.

This walk is quite a workout because the parking area is at about 600ft above sea level and the cache is located at about 800ft. above sea level. The total length from the parking area to the cache is under 2/10ths of a mile. You do the geometry! ?

P.S. There is a benchmark nearby the cache. It’s an easy find if you know where and what to look for.
