Geocache Description:

The cache is located at Frystown Conservation Area. It has some beautiful hiking trails open all year long. Permission to place this cache was granted by the Johnson County Conservation Board.

This 94-acre tract is located 10 miles southwest of Iowa City just off Highway 1. An unnamed tributary of Dirty Face Creek runs through the western-most part of the property. Frystown Conservation Area was acquired in 1973. At the time of acquisition, this rolling pastureland included a badly eroded ditch which had been used for a "dump" for old farm machinery and fencing material for many years. The area includes some mature oak/hickory timber and new tree and shrub plantations. Approximately 30 acres of former pastureland has been planted to a variety of hardwood trees and shrubs.

I recommend you stay in the main trail, find the bridge, take the trail north on the right side of the creek. Go all the way up north until the park boundary, turn right. Stay on the trail until you are just a few feet from the cache. Enjoy the natural area!
