Located near "downtown" Cranbury. Regular cache hidden off a woodchip/earth trail along Cranbury Brook, in a preserved open space area.
Beautiful Cranbury is one of New Jersey's best kept secrets. The "downtown" area, which consists of notable victorian and colonial houses along with a scenic lake, is both a state and national historic district, described in the nomination as:
"Cranbury is the best preserved 19th century village in Middlesex County. While there are many small mill towns in New Jersey, few are in such undisturbed enviroment as that of Cranbury"
This cache is a Tupperware-like container placed along a walking trail in a preserved open space area along Cranbury Brook. Cranbury Brook contains some beautiful freshwater wetlands that are worth checking out.
Please enter the area either via the school parking lot on Schoolhouse Lane on the west side of Main St., or the Soccer Field Entrance (A gravel road just north of the Lake, on the west side of Main St), to avoid crossing private land. Access trail is mainly from an Eagle Scout project along Cranbury Brook. Also check out Cranbury Cache #1 (GCK705) along this same trail. (Thanks to cranrob for some of the above text on Cranbury.)
Beware of poison ivy in the area. You must leave the trail a short distance (approx 100-200 feet), but it shouldn't require too much bushwhacking.
