Clues

There are differing stories concerning the creation of these steps leading up the side of a steep New Jersey hill. Some say that George Washington had them put here to make climbing easier to a lookout post at the top. Others say that the Civilian Conservation Corp made them in the 1930s. However they got there, they certainly are interesting.

Once you find the Steps, start climbing them. Whew! Youll start to get tired about halfway up. Youll pass a tree with a large hollow in it on the left side of the path. A little further on, the Steps will start to curve around to the left just past a mid-sized tree on the left side. With the tree at your back, sight 44 degrees to a small boulder. The box is in a hollow underneath the boulder behind some smaller rocks.

There is at least one geocache in the area, but Im pretty sure its near the top of the hill.

If you reach the spiked steps, youve gone too far.

Bring your own ink, black is strongly recommended.
The rough-hewn rocks which make up the steps are loose in spots; take great care in ascending/descending.
Please rehide well.
