Found it Sleepy_hollow found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

BCP454 - 9999 Trail

I decided to head out to the Bragg Creek area this afternoon to check out the newly listed caps. So, I set my sights on this fine location west of Turner Valley. After surveying the situation, I settled on an approach from the ridge top and it left me about 1.3 km from the cap. You can easily get closer - 800 - 900 metres, but the number of hunters at that access made me move along to the loftier location. The hike to the cap from parking followed an initial hiking trail along the ridge, a collection of game trails, some light bushwhacking, and a couple of small ridges before hitting the cap clearing. It was interesting to note that the cap sits at about 4800 feet and the surrounding ridges on the trail to the cap about 5200 feet.

After arriving at the cap site I quickly found the cap, grabbed a few pictures, and checked out the surroundings. Simply a nice rustic type of backcountry hike, no real trails, and lots of adventure. TFTH, great spot, and fun - the picture is on the way!

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
