Geocache of the Week

Down the Rabbit Hole (GCXQ5C)

Down the Rabbit Hole (GCXQ5C)

The treasures of New York City’s Central Park reveal themselves as geocachers search for this micro-cache.  More than 1250 geocachers have already logged a smiley on the cache, “Down the Rabbit Hole” (GCXQ5C).

The difficulty two, terrain two cache is located somewhere near a statue dedicated to the creative genius behind Alice in Wonderland.

The cache page warns, “USE STEALTH – muggles are everywhere! GPS signals are weak here but be patient the cache IS there and when in doubt read the clue!”

The cache was hidden back in 2006. The cache was originally placed by gracepap. Geocacher madm now maintains the cache and altered the cache hide from a ‘lamp post cache’ to a micro-cache.

A hunt for this geocache offers adventurers a purposeful exploration of one of the crown jewels of New York City. One geocacher who logged this cache writes, “This is my first time in New York City ever! Central Park is an awesome sight to behold! I love this group of statues and the other monuments around the park. An easy find!”

    Have been to NYC several times but never to Central Park, and not since becoming a cacher. Can’t wait to get back and give this a try!

    Google maps location is approximate… just indicating Central Park… hate to give away too much.
