Geocache Description:

A cache just off of the well-established hiking trail River Trail in Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park

After meeting at Secret Trail Head: Ox Parking, I went hiking with iwikepie, nodrogenus and nooks this morning as part of a geocache-placing mentoring hike related to placing caches in natural areas with iffy GPS reception. (FYI: in case you didn't guess, I was the self-appointed mentor. )

Anyway, this was a very pleasant hike in the wonderful Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park with geocachers who proved to be good hiking companions too. (Hopefully we will meet and hike and cache together again!)

We talked about placing caches in spots that wouldn't cause seekers to create hillside erosion or new geotrails. We talked about types of places to hide containers where they wouldn't get muggled, and we talked of the importance of using good descriptions to help seekers in areas where GPS reception is iffy. I also helped with improving a couple of nearby cache placements that should now be well-received by future geocache seekers.

And on the way back, they helped me choose a place to hide a non-micro cache container that I just so happened to have with me in my backpack! They even came up with the cache name!

This cache is not too far off of the established hiker's trail River Trail on the river side of the trail using a hiding-style known locally as "under a laying of sticks". Seekers will be able to seek this cache without creating geotrails or causing hillside erosion. And the location of the hide is very visible from the trail.

Coordinates were taken by nodrogenus while standing up above the cache on the top of a certain "sumtin" with a Magellan explorist 210 (I believe) after allowing the GPS to settle down for several minutes.

Note to the The First to Find: don't despair if you find the log already signed! You will find the log already signed by iwikepie, nodrogenus, and nooks.

Enjoy! And happy caching!
