This is a letterbox geocache, listed on OpenCaching North America. It contains a hand-carved stamp - one of the earliest stamps I ever carved. It is Easter themed - not bunny's and chicks but the real reason for the holiday. Bring ink if you plan to use the stamp.

The cache is located on the Dofasco 2000 trail. It's 400 meters round trip, or 1/4 mile. There is another OCNA cache about 100 meters or 300 feet beyond this one.

To find the letterbox: park in the small parking lot on Second Rd East. (GPS: enter 544 Second Rd E Stoney Creek, ON or N 43° 12.188' W 79° 44.485' or 43.2032, -79.7416)

Follow the trail for about 200 meters. There will be farm fields on both the left and the right side of the trail. When you near the end of the field that is on the left, look for an old farm gate just off the trail on the left. The cache is wired in on the backside of a small tree, 4 feet behind the gate. Be careful for the old fencing and rusty wire near the gate and the cache (hint).

The cache is about 2' off the ground and should be accessible through most of the winter.

If you struggle with the clues, you can use a GPS and navigate to N 43° 12.157' W 79° 44.339' where you will find the letterbox. You could just use c:geo on Android to view and navigate to the cache (free OCNA account may be required).

PLEASE if you find the letterbox PLEASE log it online, here on LbNA or on OCNA or on both. Thanks!

Hike length: 0.5 miles
