The Treasure of the Black Pearl cache is based on the Pirates of the Caribbean: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL movie.
Captain Jack Sparrow the swashbuckling high-seas pirate has come ashore and hidden a map to his treasure chest. If you dare to search for Jack Sparrows hidden treasure, you must first find his hidden treasure maps, which you will have to follow using your compass, to locate his treasure chest. Following the maps correctly, will lead you to his hidden treasure chest. Jack has chosen his favorite spot, a woodland marsh, which reminds him of the Caribbean.
This treasure chest cache is located in the scenic Loantaka Brook Reservation. This Morris County Park got its name from the Native American Lenni-Lenape Tribe. Loantaka means "the place of the cold winter" which refers to the Great Swamp and surrounding area.
The park offers 5 miles of multi-use paved trails stretching through the Townships of Morris, Harding, and Chatham. Parking is available on Kitchell Road.
