Geocache Description:

A small park, on a quiet one way street, with river side trail. Beginning of trail is close to elevated train bridge. It then goes down by the water's edge. A large (10foot) granite wall separates park from train tracks. The cache's elevation is 53ft above sea level.(With a +/- 5ft on my rino530). The terrain is extremely slippery when wet. Hence the higher difficulty rating.

Cache is nestled between train platform and marina. Each is between a third and a half of a mile away. Parking is on the side of the road at parking coordinates. If you wish, enter park at the wooden box and poles. then go to the granite bench directly in front of you, and take the trail to the left, following the steps down. The cache is located less than a quarter of a mile down the trail (closer if you bush whack on the side trails). This trail is nicely groomed with railroad ties for steps. Please exercise caution when bringing children, path can get slippery and muddy and is parallel to the river at times. There are some great views along the path. Please be wary of the ever popular fishermen, as these muggles watch more than bobbers.
