Geocache Description:

Perhaps one of the best overlooks in all of Redding, a true hikers delight.
This is a no nonsense, gimmicks, puzzle, projections, calcs, googling etc., cache, just good old fashioned straight forward basic geocaching.
A non typical Zurcher set-up.


Imagine, above coordinates are the actual cache location, yes really, just dial in and go. Take along food, drink and camera, as this is a classic example of being shown another “gem” of nature…..two great overlooks
And a final picnic site with view toward the south west and Long Island Sound.

Parking is just off Topstone Road, [ gravel surface ] at:
41 18.234 / 73 26.163 and to make it even more easy, look at the Letterbox listing for: “TOPSTONE PARK SERIES”.
Cache is very near the “Photo Op” Letterbox.
Actually, if you’ve found it, the Letterbox, you are very close!
Don’t get mixed up, make sure it’s a geocache, a 3x5 inch tupperware.
Don’t give up. As, I do confess, the physical hiding method is a bit “Zurcherish”.
Please re-hide exactly, the hopefully obvious, same way you found it.

Note: take the Stuart Chase Long View trail [ white blaze with thin vertical blue stripe ] to get up and down the hill.
