Scenic Caches from Oshawa to Montreal

Recommended Posts

We'll be taking a driving vacation soon and want to combine tourism with caching. Can anyone suggest some caches in scenic areas (places with a view, places with interesting things to see)between Oshawa and Montreal?

Here's a few that I have done that are accesiable from the Hwy 401 or the 1000 Islands Parkway along the St. Lawrence Seaway.

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=18110 (Kingston, ON Nice Views)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=16690 (Gananoque, ON Look carefully at pics to help locate this one)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=26670 (Mallorytown Landing Just a little bit of a hike)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=24585 (Mallorytown Landing Easy, Right at the Hwy 401)

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=19794 (Iroquois, ON Right at the seaway lock, nice views of ships)

And in Brockville, ON is my cache and there is still a bug waiting in it and just a little drive down the road from the Hwy 401 and a nice little walk http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=30245( watch your GPS and you may see signs for a shortcut.

 

Best of Luck

P.S. email me if you need any info on these and any other info for the area icon_smile.gif

Well, my wife and I just got back from Team Bradinns first Geocaching Road Trip. We headed down to Kingston to visit relatives, we hit Several, and I can say that they are all quite nice.

I would recommend:

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=23199

 

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=13073

 

We found all 3 of these to be quite nice, and they are all quite short hops off the 401 while you are driving.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I got a chance to check the discussion group before we left and again on the way back so we did find a few that were suggested.

 

Would highly recommend for ingenuity:

 

I Spy GC5773 - very intriguing.

 

Ultra-Camo GC3C3F - best container we've seen so far.

 

For scenic views we liked:

 

Devil Made Us Do It GC35D6

 

The Fort GC46BE

 

Wooded Waterfront GC3652

 

Honorable mentions to:

 

Urban Microcache #1 GC4BC6 - novel way to hide a micro

 

Rusty Bridge Cache GC7028 - camo pvc tub
