Geocache Description:

What you have here is your two-stage multi on your Bruce Trail.

No math.
No cryptics.
No decoder tables.

Boring.

Now what?.....It's a puzzle!!


Unlike many others, this is a real puzzle, and you will find it hidden at the posted coordinates. Inside this puzzle you will find the coordinates for the final.

Simple.


You might notice that the puzzle is locked. To open it, naturally you will need the key.


And oh by the way, the KEY is inside the puzzle.

What the heck??


Your challenge lies in retrieving the key, and unlocking the puzzle. I have tried to choose a location that is a pleasant spot — you might need an extra few minutes to figure out how to remove the key. Go ahead... sit down and take a load off your feet.

Some of you will be on your way to the final in a minute or two. Some of you should have brought that sandwich. A smoked Brie on pumpernickel would have been nice.

Please be patient, and above all, please do not bend, fold, spindle or mutilate my puzzle….. no force is required....the key will come out with surprising ease once you get the configuration right. The key is pretty small... so be careful not to drop it!! Although I did not add a "no night" Attribute, if you drop that key at night, then two of us are going to have fits. The coordinates for the final are inside the puzzle, so take note.

PLEASE drop the key back into the puzzle, lock it up and put it back before heading down to the final. Enjoy the trail!

The final is a traditional container located a little further along the trail, and contains the usual assortment of goodies.



Happy hunting!

Update! : based on someone's first experience at the site, it might be helpful to note:

- yes, there are moving parts on the puzzle, but none of them are removeable.... the key will come out on its own.
- the hike to the final is over 1km from the puzzle as the crow flies, so make sure you have enough time!
