Hey look, there's two caches in that picture! I've been admiring Hillside Cemetery in Cambria, NY, located halfway up (or down) the Niagara Escarpment as a potential cache placement location for years. But I was really never interested in inviting 100 people a year to this rarely visited burial ground on With the low traffic associated with an OCUS cache, I became more interested in my idea, and with the advent of BITcaching, I finally pulled the trigger in August, 2011.

Hillside Cemetery has burials dating back to 1816, and the sign says plots are still available, and there are in fact recent burials there, including a touching one with toys all around it for a boy who died at age 7 in 2008. Here is a Nice record of the cemetery on a Genealogy website

You are looking for a BITcache, i.e. a Bound ID Tag, not too far into the "woods". More information is available at Also, there is an example of what a BITcache looks like below.

Enjoy your visit to this historical burial ground. No night caching, of course. And as someone who has been "watching" this cemetery for years, I can tell you there is absolutely NO WINTER MAINTENANCE whatsoever, and you would have to park on the side of the road (if you feel comfortable doing so) and tromp through the snow, if caching in the winter. And the Niagara Escarpment is one cold place in the winter.

Hidden over two years ago, not found in over a year. But I'll tell you what, this BIT Cache is in pristine condition. It's under tree cover, but I'm still totally shocked at how brand new looking it is. Back in the day, I had them printed at Kinkos (and it's much larger than my newer BIT Caches, probably double the size), and I had them machine laminated there at Kinkos too. Come and get it!

3413.  Stopped by here on may way from Lockwood to Niagara area.  No one was around and I was able to leave my car and make the find in just a few minutes.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

I was out on a Black Friday Opencaching Bomb today. Ended up driving a lot more and not getting as many finds as I intended.  But it was a great day to be outside and not at Toys r Us at 4:30 am . Laughing  Arrived here just as the sun was beginning to set for the day. Followed my compass to the GZ and soon spotted the game piece. Its in very good shape still. Im sure no one has noticed it that isn't looking for it. Thanks for another cool BIT cache in a restful spot. SF7

We are in this area on a mini vacation at Niagara Falls. Of course with vacation comes caching. This was the second of nine OCUS caches today in the area. This was my third BITcache. Fortunately I walked right up to this one. TFTC

By golly, I thought for sure I'd be the first one here. Busy place today. I wasn't sure what size cache I was looking for, but I spotted it from a short distance after maybe a 10 minute search. My GPS read 15' at GZ.

I visited this cemetery about 10 years ago while conducting genealogy research. It was nice to make a return visit today. Thanks!
