This should be an easy find. The cache is a standard size ammo can marked as a geocache, with a log book and many things to choose from.

You may want to get a trail map at the entrance to the park. You won't need it for this cache, but it'll come in handy if you want to seek other caches in the park.

Don't forget that there's a $2 parking permit fee which can be paid at most of the marked parking areas. The gates are locked after 4:30 pm on weekdays and 6:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday. It's OK to be in the forest until sunset, but if you expect to be in the park after hours, park your car outside the gates to avoid the parking fine. Check the posted signs for seasonal variations.

Permission for this cache was given by Harbison State Forest management. You may contact the Harbison State Forest Office at (803)896-8890 with any questions or if you need any assistance while in the forest.
