This cache has been archived.

Zoltarus: Time to move on. . . This cache has been a lot of fun for me. I still remember searching all hours of the night to find that perfect location . . . a place with the right ambiance to match the story line.

Glad to see that my fellow cachers enjoyed their visits. Thanks you all for sharing the fun with me, it was delightful to read your logs.

Geocache Description:

Waterproof boots are recommended for this cache, although you should not have to walk through water. Keep an eye out for mountain bikers on the Red Trail during the day.

Telltale Heart Night Cache

This cache is designed to be found at night. You will need a headlamp (or flashlight held up close to your head).

The cache is not at the posted coordinates! The coordinates are for the trailhead. (Round trip to this cache is about 1 mile).

The GRAVEYARD has never been officially acknowledged, it has been described in local legends dating back to 1695 when a madman murdered an old witch from Salem and buried her in this very spot. It was said that the witch drove him insane and that he eventually confessed to the murder after being tormented by the sound of her still beating heart (like a watch wrapped in cotton). If it is quiet you may even hear it yourself.

PARKING: is available at N 44 deg 55.842' W 68 deg 41.149'

Walk along the WOODS ROAD until you reach a large stand of tall red pines on your right, about 0.22 miles (N 44 deg 55.960 min W 68 deg 40.919 min)

Walk southerly through the trees about 0.18 miles along the RED TRAIL to the Trailhead (at the listed coordinates).

Enter the SWAMP TRAIL, on the right and follow the YELLOW/WHITE MARKERS TO THE CACHE.

If you are very brave you may want to check out the orange trail into the swamp, but if you are not careful you may be eaten by a Grue.

When you reach the graveyard, the Cache will be nearby in a Black Ammo Box near the bones of a not so lucky Hippihiker, who would have been the FTF, but I forgot to post the warning about the GRUES. Congrats to Sudonim for his FTS (First to Survive).

After finding the cache you will have to backtrack a bit to the BLUE TRAIL which will lead you back to the Trailhead.
