A nice multi-cache that you should be prepared to get some exercise on. In honor of the opening of another season of the "coolest game on earth", I placed this one near a local hockey/ice skating rink. The Albany River Rats used to practice here but now this facility is mostly just used by youth and amateur teams. In the cold winters.....there is also a speed skating track located just outside the rink. The waypoint caches are in WELL HIDDEN micro containers (film case size) and the final cache is in a well hidden 30cal ammo can. Located along a paved multi-use path that runs along a stretch of the old historic Boston & Maine RR (B&M) in Lansingburgh (North Troy). Most maps still show the RR tracks still there in this area but its been gone since the 1950's. Many features along the trail still exist from the old RR days though. The micros are just off the trail and easily accessible but the final is a small climb up a rougher trail on a hillside. I suggest parking at: 42 45.601N 073 40.516W The Knickerbacker Recreational Facility Ice Skating Arena. The path is just east of the parking lot. Bikes, dogs and such are all welcome on this path....just no motorized vehicles. Its a couple mile long path if you do the entire thing and does have some other trailheads along the way at various points. All portions of the cache are well hidden and PLEASE make sure it remains that way after you are done. The area is obviously heavily traveled at times so discretion is strongly advised. The location for the final is my biggest local kids do sometimes hang out in the area at night but have little chance of discovering the cache unless left exposed. The cache is well stocked with hockey memorabilia....Hockey pucks, trading cards, pins, patches, etc....
