Once you have located the Candy Man’s first Geo-caching clue look for the castle on the hill, affectionately named “Waring’s Castle,” overlooking Winthrop. Guy Waring built this rugged, sturdy, hand-hewn log castle in 1897.
Located in the vicinity of the castle (not far from the boardwalk) is the mining equipment used by miners and prospectors from yesteryear to process their gold and silver caches. What method did the hard-rock miners use to transport their precious ores from inside the mines? Your correct answer will direct you to where the final “Geo Relic Treasure Cache” is hidden amidst the mining equipment.
