A one-mile hike along the Bakeman Farm Trail on
Cape Rosier, through gorgeous mossy forest with
a long-forgotten foundation as a bonus... Now
featuring a GRC (minus the GR)!
We wanted to plant this somewhere nice to visit, but
still give a self-deprecating nod to the reputation
of micros as "Guard-Rail Caches", as well as coming
up with a good pun for such a wonderfully named piano
key. We found the perfect spot, and think you'll enjoy
visiting it as well (Mention in your log if you get the
pun - We hope we didn't make it too subtle).
The cache consists of a film canister with a logbook and
a sort-of stub of a pencil. It starts with no trade-items
in it, but it has enough room to hold a couple of small
coins or similar tiny toys.
We used the ClayJar rating system for this cache,
but don't let the "3" terrain worry you. Some (very
short) patches of the trail get a bit rough, but the
majority of it only requires a gentle uphill slope and
a loop of just under a mile (both ends of the trail go
to the road, with about a tenth of a mile stretch between
The cache itself lives in an unmissable 6ft ring of 18
trees (counted at shoulder-height), 10 paces from the
trail. You don't need to squeeze inside the ring of
trees to get to it.
Congrats to Becket for FTF!

No formal parking, but plenty of room to pull off
the road. You can halve the total distance if you
park here, but you'll miss the best half of the hike.
