Geocache Description:


 

Eagles Peak, standing at 1682 feet, is the second highest named peak in Ashland County and is less than a mile from the highest peak in the county, Mount Whittlesey at 1872 feet. This range has long been known for its mining activity by evidence of the ruins of the Birkshire Mine that can still be found on the way to the lookout tower on Mount Whittlesey. The view from here is one of the more remote and beautiful in the region.

Start at N46 18.155 W90 38.421 on CR-P just south of the city of Mellen. A waypoint is given to the spur trail that leads to Eagles Peak. Approximately 1.0 miles one-way with an elevation gain of about 300 feet.

 

WARNING!...The ghost of a man wearing military attire has appeared on the pinnacle of Eagles Peak examining the scenery. This phantom is extremely active in this area...

 


Enjoy your visit, the views, and salute old glory!!
