Geocaching is an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called "geocaches" or "caches") anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container (usually a tupperware or ammo box) containing a logbook and "treasure," usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaches are currently placed in over 100 countries around the world and on all seven continents, including Antarctica. Learn more at

N 41° 38.182
W 081° 11.350

The story of Whitlam’s sugaring history
Remains, to this day, a local mystery.
Overlook Trail is your first destination.
Bridge Trail goes upstairs to a high elevation.
Go right on top, left at the split, then right at the second split: Sugarbush direction.
Wet woods make boots a proper clothing option.
Past the remains of the sugarhouse there to your right,
Past small hemlocks and oaks of great height,
A double maple split at the base
Has the ticket for your cache face-to-face.

This cache expires January 31, 2016.

Healed maple tap holes are good history indicators.
In his day, Francis Yaxley was an outstanding sugar-maker.
To the sugarbush corner, follow the lake trail near North Point,
Then the Whitetail Trail to the first bench on the right.
Off-trail, hike toward the exclosure for deer.
Beware lots of downed trees — you’ll need to steer clear!
Heads-up, though, for north of the exclosure,
You’ll see where a large maple has fallen over.

The Park District’s sugarbush of maple trees
Has been under our management since 1983,
Though it was a sugarbush for many years before.
Swing by at sugaring time to find out more!
From the sugarhouse, proceed downhill
And veer to the right when you reach the stream.
Ahead, a tubing collection shed can be seen.
On the hillside below the sugarhouse,
A rotting maple stump has a hole fit for a mouse.
