The woods in Pigeon Point, not far off a trail.
Happen to be working close by this afternoon, so I checked it out. Very reachable!
- An inaccurate trail map is located here
- I will be at the gate west of the hashpoint just before 4:00. After that, I propose we reach the point itself and then walk through more of Pigeon Point. --Thomcat (talk) 14:32, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
Yesterday it was work in West Seattle; today it was a role playing game (D&D 5E) at Meeples Games.
Having briefly scouted the area and decided that the hashpoint was either on the path or reachable from the path, I first visited the school north of the hashpoint. A big fence surrounding the school gave indication that the paths shown on google maps may not connect. I then returned to the point I was at yesterday, directly west of the hashpoint.
I waited until 4:00 in case another intrepid Seattleite chose to brave the geohash with me. Unsatisfied, I then headed back down the path. I turned on tracklogging, but apparently had it set to once a minute - giving me all of four points when I neared the hashpoint. Wll muck with configuration another time.
I continued past the point as the trail headed down into the ravine. I stopped at a hole in the fence (hi OtherJack!) and chatted briefly with a lady with a dog. Further down was a creek, and a lot of mud apparently. Eventually this trail (not on google maps or open street map) would lead to another road, south of this woods.
Heading back north, I ended up directly east of the point, then set off trail a few meters to the spot itself. Success!
On my way out, I took a different trail which would eventually connect with the school. Not far from the hashpoint, I found a little cave where a small stream (brook?) trickled down a 1.5 meter waterfall. Very cool!
Returning to my vehicle, I continued to Meeples Games, stopping briefly at the Dragonfly sculpture which is not far from the hashpoint. All cool things documented, the expedition came to an end.
