An ammo box hidden far above Ice Cave.
As a boy I did alot of hiking, climbing, and cross country skiing on this hill.
While I wanted to hide this closer to the cliffs that are above Ice Cave and that overlook Decorah, I thought it would be better to just bring people to the area and let them explore the area on their own. There are no cliffs close to the cache.
There are many ways to reach this cache. Here are some the main ways:
1) From the Dunning Springs parking lot (Approx. N43 18.672, W91 47.472). The hike will start southeast up a fairly steep path, where at the top the hiker will be rewarded with a beautiful view of Decorah from the overlook. From there, it is about a .5 mile hike on paths to the cache location
2) From the parking near N43 18.588 W91 46.464. This hike will go west and will follow mountain bike paths up the back side of the hill. This route is the fairly easy, but may be the muddiest. Be careful of bikers going up or down the hill.
3) From the parking near N43 18.63 W91 47.238, which is on Ice Cave road about .3 miles west of Ice Cave. There path to the southeast allows for a fairly easy hike up the hill, but may be muddy due to mountain bike use.
