For those who travel to the lakes region of New Hampshire, the Working Forest series.
Thanks for the thread Dan.
Adding a new one Di and I did today...The Bear Mountain series by geoskeffs near Turner. There's 13 total caches, a 3 to 4 hour round trip hike with varying but not real hard terrain and then the view at the top which is simply stunning. We had a rumble or two of thunder and had to backtrack after hitting the summit but had another fantastic hike. Specifics: first half mile up is on largely rocky terrain and the steepest part of the hike. It levels off and the footing is much better after the #5 cache. The hides have great coords, but the tree cover made my 550 a little slow to get me on the cache. Use your geosenses. We had no DNF's. If you do all 13, you end up looping back to the main trail which unfortunately we did do because of the impending storm. (Don't be surprised if I run up and get the other 3 real soon!)
Put this bunch on your "bucket list!"
These sound like exactly my kind of caches. Easy on the knees.....
speaking of trail systems...today I was half searching on the site for some trails that might be friendly enough for a stroller. Well packed dirt, or pavement. My back is not up to back packing a one year old at the moment and wondered where we might find some paved bike trails to walk and cache on today. Heard there were some bike trails in the Georgetown/ Reid State Park area but did not find any info online to find out the condition. I know the Brunswick paved trail along the river would be one, but does anyone have any references closer to Rockland area that would fit the bill?
The Trail at Reid would NOT be stroller friendly. The Rail Trail between Augusta and Gardiner is paved so it would be perfect. Most of the trails in the Vaughn Woods in Hallowell where there's over 20 caches would be smooth enough for a stroller.
I think we heed a new attribute....knee friendly.
