Geocache Description:

This cache is an ammo can hidden on Dunderberg Mountain in Harriman State Park.

This cache was issued a state park permit #BM-5, by the Bear Mountain Park office.

Parking is available close to intersection of Rt.9W/202 and Jones Point Road at the hiker's parking lot at N 41° 16.863 W 73° 57.770. From the parking lot, take either the footpath, or walk south down the road to the trailhead. Either point of entry will take you to the double-blazed Ramapo Dunderberg Trail (white with a red dot) and the Timp-Torne Trail (blue). The beginning of the trail is somewhat overgrown and there are thorn bushes, so long pants are recommended. Very shortly, the trail begins to climb. You will pass by one of the tunnels constructed as part of the Dunderberg Railway Project. When the red dot and blue trails split, follow the red dot blazes up to the right. For a time, the trail follows an inclined grade constructed for the Railway. After the incline, the trail levels out and there is a scenic Hudson River vista.

I placed this cache to honor the memory of BigBill6, a local cacher who passed away on 6-10-06. He placed many wonderful caches in Harriman, and I chose this spot because of its beautiful views of the park and the Hudson River. I am sure this is a spot that he would have liked to visit.

Be sure to also visit my nearby cache, The Dunderberg Railway, on the blue blazed trail.
