Geocache Description:

Located South West of Pottageville, Ontario near Glen Echo Nature Park on a section of the Oak Ridges Moraine Trail.
Cache elevation: 317m

It comes as a suprise to many when they realize there is a Nudist Resort right in the middle of King Township! The ironic thing is it's location. Pottageville has always been know as a mosquito heaven! Why on earth would you choose to locate a clothing optional park in the middle of mosquito country? Luckily with the concerns over West Nile Virus, this area has a high priority for local mosquito control efforts. Either way, wear some repellent with deet, just to be safe!

The cache is a camouflage painted ammo can hidden in in the Y of a fallen tree. Plan on hiking just over 1km along the the moraine to reach the cache.

You can park and enter the Oak Ridges Trail from the East along 7th Concession at: N43 58.260 W79 37.071. You can also access the trail from the West along 8th Concession, but that involves traversing muddy farm fields and more creek crossings than I could count.

The Oak Ridges Moraine extends 160 kilometres from the Niagara Escarpment in the west to the Trent River system in the east, and is on average 13 kilometres wide. One-hundred-and-fifty metres deep, the Moraine stands out as one of the most distinct landscapes of southern Ontario. Its height above the flat lands to the north and south, its rolling hills and river and stream valleys and large blocks of mixed forest provide solace and a sense of connection to the people who live, work and play on the Moraine, natural and wild habitat for flora and fauna, and untapped recreational opportunities.

NOTES:
  1. Winter friendly, though it will be under some snow.
  2. Night raid friendly.
  3. Family friendly, but watch out for jogging nudists!
  4. Bicycles are not allowed on this section of the ORM Trail.
