This cache has been archived. After visiting the cache site myself, I confirmed that this one has gone missing. Since its time to let the underbrush regrow anyway, I am archiving this cache. Thank you to all that have visited "Pine Mountain Wildlife" over the years.

Geocache Description:

Located near McGill Campground in the Los Padres National Forest, this full size cache is easily accessed from above. Beautiful birds, squirrels, chipmunks, lizards, deer, and even a coyote were seen in the hour that we took to place the cache. A?C??

There are two ways of approaching this cache, and I definitely do not recommend doing it from Mt. Pinos Road below! Make it easy on yourself and park in McGill Campground. From this one spot, you can also walk to "Per Ardua Ad Astra" (GCH6C3). If you choose to picnic in the campground, it's just $6/day. Camping is $12/night. While there is no running water, the spaces are clean and maintained and the camp host watches over the area very well. Parking is free in front of the bathrooms. There are trash dumpsters throughout the campground for your CITO efforts. My son and I placed this cache while on a relaxing overnight camping trip. The stars and Milky Way were an incredible sight from here! The cache has a nice FTF prize and loaded with other goodies. Please rehide the cache a little better than you found it. Enjoy!
