Located on the new Multi-Use path/trail near the Albany Airport. To introduce folks to the new multi-use path that runs from Airport Park / British American Park down past the Hilton, I've placed a multi-cache that should show you an interesting view of the airport's new runway expansion. Most of the path is a nicely paved trail that winds through the forest between Albany-Shaker Road and a golf course. Currently the Hilton end of the trail continues on unpaved for a bit toward the radar tower near the baseball field. There's a Benchmark over there too if you go down that far. The entire trail is nearly a mile in length but the hunt for this cache doesn't quite take you THAT far. I suggest parking at: N42 45.240 W073 49.300 The first part is a well hidden micro (film case) with coordinates for the final. The final cache is a large ammo can well stocked and well hidden. Please keep it that way when you are done. Both cache coordinates were taken on a nice clear day with averaging of 10mins at each spot several times...but due to overhead tree cover, the best accuracy I could get was about 16 to 20 feet. Once in the area....your Geo-senses should take over though and it shouldn't be too hard. Thanks and enjoy!
