Park at N41 28.019, W071 56.731 on Wintechog Hill Rd off of Rt2 0.5 miles E of the Foxwoods casino. Trail is part of the Naragansett series and is a somewhat steep, climb (~200 vertical feet, 0.4 miles) to the cache. When faced with a fork in the trail, choose "up." Slightly past the cache are great views on both the E and W sides of the ridge (see gallery). Caution!! Steep drop-offs, the cache location is not near them. Winter hiking is ill-advised. Enjoy!
Lantern hill is a ridge of pure quartz rock from which one can see 5 states (CT, NY, MA, RI, VT) on a clear day. The hill gets its name from its use as a look-out station during the war of 1812 by the residents of Stonington, CT where tar barrel lanterns were lit to signal the approach of British war ships.
The cache is a standard ammo box with lots of kid stuff, a FTF prize and a disposable camera. Please email me when the camera is full. Please replace carefully as the top of the mountain is a popular place in the summer.
