Hey all you experienced cache placers,
Kev and I have discovered a really nice walking trail we would like to place some caches on. Before we go to the town where this trail is located to get permission, we want to know how many caches we can place. Here is the issue, the trail is a loop trail that is only .40 long and the lead in to this trail runs along side part of it. So that means that at very few parts is there 600 ft from any other part. It sounds bad but this is a lovely wooded area with a nice stream and would make a great short walk in the woods for folks especially those with younger children who get bored on longer hikes. We would like to put 3 caches on this micro(at trailhead), small and regular on the actual trail. But would it satisfy groundspeak requirements if the cache listing stated to stay on the marked trail (no bushwacking) in which case the 600 ft rule would not be an issue?
I emailed maine publisher about this but I am sure he is much to busy this time of year to be able to answer. Any thoughts?
