Geocache Description:

Little Falls is a pretty spot on the St. Croix river. It’s a favorite stopping place for guided trips down the river and there is a picnic area and parking at the falls. This is a remote area, but worth the trip. 4WD is not required, but don’t bring the sports car!

To get to Little Falls, take Rt. 6 to Vanceboro. Heading east, Salmon Brook road is on the right, just after a sharp right curve, just before a sharp left and 1/4 mile from the border crossing. If you cross the RR tracks, you went too far. Coming from Canada, just after the tracks, go straight onto Salmon Brook road. After .6 miles, Salmon Brook rd changes to dirt. .2 miles later, there is a rd to the left. Don’t take that one, go straight! 2.2 miles later, bear right at the Y, 1.3 miles later bear right at another Y, .4 miles later you will reach the parking area. You should be at N45° 30.500 W067° 27.736. The trail starts just back up the road at the outhouse Hike along the river several hundred feet until you reach a picnic area, the cache won’t be much further. I had spotty GPS reception, so if you need more help, check the hint from the picnic area. I averaged 5 readings at 20-25’ accuracy, but saw 60-75’ at other times. The cache is a camo’ed 4-lock container, starting off with a Maine coin (trackable at mainegeocaching.org), some petrified wood, a Coins&Pins GPS lanyard and some other stuff. One last warning, if you want to get out alive, bring some bug spray! -----WARNING----- I have been informed that there is a history of poaching in this area at night. One cacher came in at night and saw several cars and people and heard a shot, may have been directed at him, maybe not. This spot has beautiful views in the daytime and is a good picnic spot, but is not recommended at night for this reason.
