Geocache Description:

THIS CACHE IS DISABLED DURING THE NEW YORK HUNTING SEASON.

DO NOT TAKE THE KIDS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This cache involves a lot of steep climbing. Take your camera.

This cache is at 1165 feet of elevation, on the ground. Starting at the the parking area, you lose 150 feet quickly. Wearing good hiking boots and taking a good climbing rope may be a good idea. I didn't have one when I put the cache out and wished I had one. ALSO make sure you have at least 3 hours of light left in the day before attempting this cache and the one near it.

Doing this cache in the rain or shortly after rain would be real bad.

Although the container if filled with kids toys, leave the kids home for this cache. It's TOO DANGEROUS. At one point, if you take the easy way in, you will be walking on a backbone ridge, 5 feet wide with a 200 foot drop ON BOTH SIDES.

Parking for the Conservation Entrance is N42 12.997 W79 43.506 Enter the forest on the conservation trail. There is a sign at the enterance. Do not go in at posted property. Wear hunter safety orange during hunting season.

When you find the cache, remember I carried it there. Now you know my definition of a Neanderthal Cache. I left 2 Green Jeeps and a Geocoin Club coin TB in the cache. Only take ONE per group so the next group has a prize to go for.

REMEMBER to take coordinates of where you parked. Fail to do this and you will pay. Tell someone where you're going in case you get injured. As with caches of this type, you may lose signal frequently.

Hide it better than you found it.

WARNING UPDATE:
Due to the frequency of human-bear encounters, both the PA and the NY Fish and Wildlife Offices are advising hikers, fishermen, and any other persons (geocachers) that use this area in a recreational or work related function to take extra precaution while in the field.

They advise the outdoorsmen to wear little noisy bells on clothing so as to give advance warning to any bears that might be close by so you don't take them by surprise.

They also advise anyone using this area to carry "Pepper Spray" with him in case of an encounter with a bear.

Outdoorsmen should also be on the watch for fresh bear activity, and be able to tell the difference between Black Bear feces and the feces of the Eastern Grizzly Bear found in PA and NY.

Black Bear feces is smaller and containes lots of berries and squirrel fur. Eastern Grizzly Bear feces has little bells and it smells like pepper.
