Geocache Description:

An ammo can cache located in El Corte de Madera Creek open space preserve.

El Corte de Madera Creek open space preserve has a history of logging, with, at one point, eight different mills along its creek banks. Its remote nature, coupled with steep terrain, kept loggers away until the 1860s. Resourceful entrepreneurs spent the next 50 years building and operating saw mills. Around the turn of the century, the mills were closed or nearing the end of their economic viability, but modern logging continued off and on until 1988, shortly after the open space preserve was created.

Closest parking for this cache is at gate CM02, although the hike from Skegg's Point is very nice as well. At the cache site you will find evidence of the towering giants that once dominated the landscape, strangely arranged in a geometric pattern.

Please approach the cache from the north. There is a closed area to the south of the cache.

The cache contains swag for kids and adults alike. There are five geocoins. These are not travel bugs, and are intended as trade items. If you don't have coin to trade, please leave them for someone who does.
