Geocache Description:

Puzzle cache. Clue sheet and instructions are on MN DNR website or available at Wild River State Park. Easy terrain, but solving clues requires visiting multiple locations and collecting information then determining the meaning of the clue, may take more than one day to complete all clues and get cache coordinates.

Wild River State Park History Cache I In the tradition of “The Da Vinci Code” by Dan Brown and the movie “National Treasure”. Can you decipher the clues that lead to the “Treasure”? Pit your intellect and your puzzle-solving ability against the clue-writer. Each clue, solved correctly, leads to another location in the park, and another clue to solve. At the next-to-the-last location, if you’ve solved all the preceding clues and avoided false trails, you’ll be able to decode the coordinates of the final cache. At the final cache, you can take a token which you redeem to receive a specially-designed enameled mini-medallion (a PathTag). Clue sheet and instructions are on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website.
