The very first cache in San Diego County! I left this cache on 09-10-00 as a kind of memorial to my dog, Phil, who loved to hike with me to explore the mountains of San Diego's east county. Subsequently, this stash is set along one of his most favorite hikes, and contains treasures for both Geocachers and Geocanines!
I recorded this cache location using my ancient but reliable Garmin GPS 38, so I can't honestly vouch for its degree of accuracy. It has, however, been quite accurate in finding stashes, so it should provide enough good data to find this cache. The coordinates to Phil's Memorial Cache are as follows:

You probably should purchase a National Forest Service Adventure Pass in order to park legally in the Cleveland National Forest Recreation Area ($5.00 for the single day pass). I have seen lots of people park there without a pass and seldom get cited, so it's up to you whether you want to spend the time and money to get the pass or take the risk of a ticket and fine. If you want to purchase an Adventure Pass, you can buy one at any Big 5 Sporting Goods store, the Mount Laguna Visitor's Center (N32'52.015 W116'25.111), or next door at the Mount Laguna Lodge and Trading Post.
