DocSnappy: Despite the fact that the Metroparks levy passed this election day, it would appear that this park still won't be opening anytime in the near future. As such, I'm archiving this listing. If the park re-opens, I'll consider placing another cache there at that point.

Geocache Description:

This is the first in a series of caches geared (pardon the pun) toward geocaching by mountain bike. While all of the caches can be accessed on foot, they are generally on or near mountain bike trails, and may be a bit further from parking than most would like to walk.

This cache is located off one of the trails in the Woodsdale Park trail system and was placed with permission. It is not suitable for a road bike. Later caches in the series will probably be farther from parking. This one is not a significant distance, so is suitable for non-bikers. Please stay on the trail until within 100 ft of the cache. The cache was placed in the fall, and no significant bushwacking was required, but the area may be more overgrown in the spring. You were warned :-) The cache is also located in an area that should not be susceptable to the routine spring flooding in the area, so it should be available year round.

The Woodsdale Park trail system is not a long or difficult trail system by any mountain bike rating system, but if you're in the mood for a short scenic ride through the woods, this is the place!

This is my first cache, and I'd appreciate feedback on the listing, the cache itself, or it's location. You're looking for the traditional ammo can. The cache was initially stocked with new Matchbox vehicles (in the package) in the spirit of quality, not quantity. I intend to keep my logs, so please try to keep the custom log in good condition. Finding the cache just to log it is also welcome.

Be sure to check out the other cache(s) at this park!

A note on the rating: I used the automated rating system based on an honest assessment of the conditions at the site. Frankly, I think the "3" terrain is a bit harsh. I wouldn't hesitate to take my 3yr old grandson on this hunt. (walking anyway). If general feedback suggests "3" isn't appropriate, then I'll revise it later... Thanks for looking!

11/29/06 - After several comments in support of my opinion that the rating was too severe, I've decreased it in accordance with the suggestions I've received. Thanks everyone!
