Because this station was monumented fairly recently, it is not loggable in Geocaching, even though it has a NGS PID. However, the description is thorough, and locating this mark is relatively easy. Park on the west shoulder of the roadway in the vicinity of the mark, there is room to do so. This area tends to be busy, watch out for traffic.
