Tag! Yorik! (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC3CD8Q) is really a good one.

Middle of the Big Road (http://www.geocachingmaine.org/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC33HQH) Is cool for both the location on the map and the acutual location.

Both of those links appear to be broken.

I should have phrased the this better and explain what I am doing. I am going to Bangor this weekend and I am bringing a non cacher. I would like to find a easy traditional and impressive cache to bring a non cacher to try to get them involved in caching.

A nice leisurely walk in the City Forest is always a good way to pick up a few traditional caches.

I liked At the Feet of the Dead . . . near a cemetery . . . a very old cemetery with a lot of Irish grave sites.

Remember When . . . The Bangor Twin Drive In was a clever cache . . . especially given what the cache owner does for a living.

Marina Meanders . . . an older cache with a short walk and some decent views of the river.

Geo Zoo . . . lots of fun . . . especially for kids . . . but currently out of service due to hunting season . . . the Snipe Hunt series nearby is just as fun though.

Those two I mentioned fit the bill. Tag is a little harder than some as far as actually get into the cache but well worth it. Middle of the big road is cool because, how many caches can you get in the medium of the interstate.

The city forest/Walden Park Preserve/Essex woods are all spots with some walking.

1.12 miles - Thomas Hill Cache (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=672e187d-855e-4c9d-880b-4cba68c5f08c)(Traditional)(Regular) (GCXY61) by woodfam (http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?id=139331) (1.5/1.5) is at the Thomas Hill Standpipe, bit of a view and history...

Some u on the Orono trails as well depending how far you want to go.
