+Rusty O Junk Posted March 17, 2005 Share Posted March 17, 2005 Not all state parks are as unfriendly to geocaching as the Palisades region. Like most of you posting here I've been met with open arms at most of the park offices I've been to. I'm listed on our local website as a contact person and the other day I found the email you see below in my inbox. I'm posting it here with permission of Mr. Herisko. Hello! I recently came across your site and was hoping to inquire further about placing geo-caches. Here at Lake Taghkanic we haven't placed any geo-caches along our trails yet, however we would very much enjoy a group to use our facilities for that function. In fact we would like to possibly host a geo-caching event, where individuals could learn to use GPS, and trail map/coordinate reading. Lake Taghkanic State Park is located about 40 miles southeast of Albany, right off of the Taconic State Parkway. We offer a 60 site campground, 30 cabins & cottages, roughly 10 miles of hiking & multi use trails, 2 beaches, picnic areas, swimming and boating. Please contact us if you are interested in placing geo-caches in our park. Sincerely, Thomas A. Herishko Lake Taghkanic State Park NYS OPRHP - Taconic Region Thomas.Herishko@oprhp.state.ny.us ph: 518.851.3631 fax: 518.851.3633 I live about 40 miles north of Albany or 80 miles from Lake Taghkanic park. It's not in a direction I normally travel so maintenance of a cache there would be a problem for me. Hopefully someone living in that area will read this, contact Mr. Herishko and place a couple caches there. Quote Link to comment
