hello everyone, long time lurker, first time poster here. I come here to ask if anyone knows any places that fit the thread title in san antonio?


the reason i ask is because i am an avid Geocacher. I have recently wanted to do a string of placed caches in really interesting/scary/crazy places in town. The only problem with the places i already know are that they are occupied. I was able to find an old abaonded house out near Growden road (near the impound). Even during the day when i placed the cache, the property was a little creepy.

please let me know if any of you have any recommendations. alos, if you arent sure what geocaching is you can check it out here geocaching.com . it has been featured in the news a few times, and is described as a "high-tech" treasure hunt.


Thanks.

Let me know what you find because there isn't anything left in town anymore. And for the few places that are still around on the outskirts, they don't take kindly to trespassers. There is a cool city park with trails in the med center called Denman Park that is one block away from the old Midget Mansion (which is now Promontory Pointe). The Denman Estate house is still on the property but there are groundskeepers and the house is occupied and clearly marked with No Trespassing signs. There are trails and a cool pagoda on the pond, but it's prolly too small for 'caching.

The old "Car Wash/Satan on the Caboose" spot next to the rail road tracks and quarry on Huebner Rd near Vance Jackson has now become apartments.

I do a lot of hiking and stuff so I will let you know if I find anything cool.

Here ya go: Haunted in San Antonio, 32 pages of haunted goodness!

There are several places where you could leave the caches, such as Donkey Lady Bridge or the Haunted Railroad Tracks. And even for some of the places you can't directly access, like the Chinese Cemetery or the "Insane Asylum," there are places nearby that are not private property where they could be hidden.

Cheers! M2

Bastrop State Park is the best place I've been for geocaching, just have to stay out of the Houston Toad areas, but they're all marked with signs.

Thanks. I missed that thread. Looks like a San Antonio Urban Legends and Hauntings string of caches is in order.

There is an old abandoned small shack that looks creepy but it's not much hidden or far from a stretch of road. If you drive down 90 west just past 1604 on the right there is a neighborhood called West Pointe, drive up that road and as you wind your way towards the next neighborhood there is the shack I am talking about to your left partially boarded up. not much of a find but pretty creepy... We had planned to walk down to the house but the veg overgrew and we thought it was much to high for us.
