How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
If you are new to Geocaching and want to try a cache without using a GPS unit,
just follow the directions and decrypt the 'Additional Hints'to find the hidden location of the cache.
Obviously it is also suitable for Geocachers with a GPSr but the direct route to the cache is nothing like as much fun as larking about in and around the river.
I recommend parking in the pull-in (N50.51.474/W001.36.329) on the left hand side of A35, just past the bridge with the house opposite, a mile or two (er..that’s a guess!)outside of Lyndhurst going towards Christchurch.
The pull-in is directly opposite the entrance to the New Forest Reptile Centre, which is well worth a look in the summer.
PLEASE NOTE- The sign for the Reptile Centre is taken down out of season and the gate is shut.
This is a great walk for children up to the age of about 80, to splash about, make rope swings (please remove after), walk across trees over the river and generally have a great day clowning about!
This is a favourite walk for Hythe Monkey Boys (Sam & Ollie) and we hope you enjoy it too!
It is not suitable for pushchairs and wellies are recommended!
Climb the stile and then turn left and walk to the river. At the river bank, follow the water downstream for about 1/3 of a mile, until you get to the wooden bridge then decrypt the clue on this page to locate the cache!
Look out for 'The Hollow Tree with 3 Doors'(as The Monkey Boys call it!) near the beginning of the walk downstream on the right hand side.
The cache contains all sort of goodies, mostly antique household stuff!
This cache is placed within the guidelines agreed with the Forestry Commision (visit link)
