I have had this account since 2010 and never logged a cache.

Thought I would try a couple and this is a place I do not recall visiting before , or it's been so long I can't remember.

After a muddy walk up I sat admiring the view for a while then back down to the road and then along the Erme river trail towards Ivybridge.

Found on day one of a three day walk on the southern part of the moor.<br /> Somehow managed to miss the proper path so ended up slogging up the valley side through thick vegetation. Once I reached the rock though the cache was soon found &amp; I stopped here for lunch. Thanks for a great cache!

I love a couple of things about Dartmoor: the peaks with their great views and stony outcrops; and also the streams running through mossy woodland. This cache has both, all within a relatively short walk; and even better, there's an old pump house thrown in for good measure!

Thanks to Amberel and his Top Cache list, I spotted this cache listing and came to a deal with the rest of my family: "If we all do this cache in the morning, I'll take you to Trago Mills in the afternoon!"

We drove through heavy showers, but miraculously we had a lovely weather window of an hour or so while we walked up to this cache. As ascended towards Tristis Rock, we could clearly hear a cuckoo in the trees beside the dry stone wall - it was great as the boys hadn't heard one before!

We found the cache quickly thanks to good coordinates. The boys were keen to trade - what a difference between a thoughtfully stocked Opencache (even when small) and the tat we normally find in geocaches!

Thanks for a good traditional cache with all the right ingredients.

We thoroughly enjoyed every part of this walk: the babbling brook, the magical wood full of moss covered rocks, the hillside carpeted with bluebells, and the spectacular views from Tristis Rock. It was a lovely sunny evening and so peaceful with just the sound of yellowhammers and a cuckoo.

The cache was very well hidden and it took us a while to find it even with the spoiler photo! We took nothing and left a mini glowstick.

Thanks for a great cache, and thanks to Amberel for drawing our attention to it via his Top Cache Awards. Just a shame it wasn't a bigger box!

Another Amberel TOP CACHE. Best of the day, best of the trip so far, and probably best of the whole holiday Laughing. I really enjoyed this one, can you tell Laughing ?

A lovely walk by the river, not too much mud after this dry spell, past acres of bluebells in full bloom, and a walk up the hill to a spectacular cache location.

Thanks for a real cracker.

Rgds, Andy

Logging date: 11/06/10 due to not having logged many of the opencaches that I have done so far. This one I found in the company of Windrush Cache Hunter during a day of finding opencaches and geocaches.

Parked as suggested and enjoyed the walk up to the cache despite the mud and the hill!  The approach I took may be a little more difficult in the bracken season but today is was fine, the walk that is not the weather!  Thanks for an introduction to a path I never knew exisited and for the chance to take in some lovely views.  Took FTF bottle opener, very useful, thanks for that as well!
