The last time I was here was over 10 years ago when these trails made up part of my high school's home cross-country course. This was a nice walk. We found the first waypoint OK, though I was a bit surprised at the geo-graffitti. We had more trouble with the second waypoint, but eventually found it. Then we misread one of the numbers and almost headed off into the wrong direction. Correcting our error, we found the cache pretty easily. TNLNSL.

On the way back to the car, we stopped by the trestle which I hear may be converted into a bike trail. After one cross country practice, we decided to jump off the trestle. (It wasn't fenced in like it is today.) I got up my nerves to make the jump and it was fun. On the way out of the water, I fell off one of the stones and onto the dirt, landing my palm in a broken beer bottle and gushing blood. The coach drove me home and after that the cross-country team was not allowed to jump off the trestle anymore.
