Geocache Description:

This is not a walking cache, you will have to drive or bike ride to each coord. The first 3 are quick, the last stage you will be hiking over some steep terrain.

This cache will take you to some spots along the Pootatuck River. The first stage is on town property great for fishing or even launching a kayak or canoe. You will need to pull off onto the grassy area to park, very short walk. Stage 2 you can park in the parking lot pretty close to the cache, you should be able to leave your vehicle running for this one. Stage 3 I have had some problems with I have come within 5 ft but also 35ft. You can park on either side of this one. Use the clue if need be and let me konw of problems. Stage 4 you can park at aprox coords N41 25.143 W073 16.981, this is a plaza in Sandy Hook center. You can also park in the rear of the United Methudist Church. There are trails from each lot. My recommendation is to park at coords b/c of schooling or church services. You will be follolwing "Al's Trail to the final stage. Terrrain is steep in spots and you do go over a fence, but my 5 year old daughter made it. Enjoy this one.
