This is my fourth cache in this general vicinity, but it is a great spot, so I will keep placing caches here until I figure out something that can last in this muggle intensive area. If you go down towards the river, you get a great bird's eye view of the river.
This cache is along the Chippewa River near the Owen Park bandshell. This summer, there is a free blues concert every Tuesday evening in the bandshell.
This is one of a series of caches along the Chippewa River Trail. The route traces quiet countryside and broad meanders of the Chippewa River. For the most part, it follows the rail bed of the Milwaukee Road railway, built in 1882, which connected Eau Claire to Red Wing, Minnesota. The railway was abandoned in 1980. This part of the trail, however, follows the river, rather than the railroad tracks.
The trail continues south though the Lower Chippewa River Valley, an area with much remaining natural habitat, including 50% of the states plant species, 70% of the state's fish species, 75% of the state's nesting bird species and 25% of all native prairies remaining in the state.
