Geocache Description:

This Multi-Cache will take you on a tour of the Genesee Valley Conservancy's (GVC) John W. Chanler Island Preserve. The Island Preserve is open from sun-up to sun-down. There are maintained grass trails, but this cache will require you to leave the beaten path at times.

The cache is located at the following final waypoint. To complete the waypoint you must solve for, A, B, and C. All are single digits.

Final Waypoint
N 42, 48.ACB W077, 48.AAC

1. SOLVE "A": Travel to coordinate: N 42, 48.516 W077, 48.396 You are looking for a sign. There is no parking lot, but you may safely park on the residential street. To solve for "A" look inside the box, what number is written inside? You have solved "A". Enter into final waypoint.

2. SOLVE "B": From sign, hike to coordinate: N 42, 48.360 W077, 48.251 What # appears on the object at the coordinate? Be sure to look on all sides of the object and to use the labeled "cache" #. You have solved "B". Enter into final waypoint.

3. SOLVE "C": Hike to coordinate: N 42, 48.237 W077, 48.186 What number do you find hidden within the tallest feature here? You have solved "C". Enter into final waypoint.

4. Find the Cache! You now have all the information you need to hike to the Island Preserve Multi-cache. Please carefully replace the cache so that it remains nicely hidden, but also peak-able. Also please take care to wrap the log book and close the container tightly to keep out weather! Thank you!

Be sure to geocache the GVC's other property, the GVC Railroad Bed.
