NTMOLOGIST: I'm sad to say that I headed out to this one to check on it and decided to put this one to rest. Thanks to all who had visited it. The Guard Hill Preserve is now cache-less.... any takers?

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This multi-cache is located in the Guard Hill Preserve located off of Guard Hill Road in Bedford, NY. The first two stages are medium-sized containers. The final is a large container suitable for all trade items and TBs.

Stage 1 is located at the parking area. The coordinates are the header coordinates. Hint: You may need to strategically park your vehicle to reduce the muggle factor while searching for the first stage. Lots of cars and equestrians. There is also a house across the street that may create an extra challenge. Standard “high-muggle territory search techniques” apply. (The fake phone call, photo taking, stretching, etc.) STAGE 1 IS NOT IN OR AROUND THE MAILBOX.

When you retrieve the coordinates to stage 2, subtract 014 from the North and subtract 009 from the West for more accuracy. Thanks DominoCT for "fine-tuning" stage two!

The trail is well-marked and the terrain begins as a dusty trail eventually leading into a peaceful, fern-infested pine grove. Total distance to and from the final cache is about one mile. This cache may take more than an hour. Each stage is close to the trail so there is no need to do any significant bushwacking until the final. The final is an easy bushwack approximately 275ft. up off the trail.
IMPORTANT!!! Please, please, please precisely return the objects that you find. (Including the logbook!!)
Please do not include spoilers when logging your visit online, being nebulous and ambiguous, however, is encouraged! Enjoy and GOOD LUCK!!.... and really, I hope you don’t lose your marbles when doing this cache!!
