This cache is part of a series intended to showcase Wisconsin’s Rustic Roads (W.R.R.). Wisconsin Legislature established the Rustic Roads program in 1973 to preserve what remains of Wisconsin's scenic, lightly traveled roads.
These caches are usually hidden in the right of way at a spot of notable beauty with no bushwhacking required. Chances for muggles along the road are limited but there are private residences on this stretch, so please be respectful of private property, protected lands, and the overall history of the area. Take your time, mind your speed, and most of all… enjoy your journey along the road less traveled.
This particular cache is hidden at a rare occurrence, the intersection of two Rustic Roads - Rustic Road 23 (also known as Rural Road) and Rustic Road 24 (also known as Emmons Creek Road). Both of these roads are paved with a small section of R24 being gravel. R23 begins in the Town of Rural (A MUST STOP!) and travels west for 3.6 miles on Rural Road through Hartman Creek State Park, ending at Hartman Creek Road. R24 extends west from Rural Road to the Portage County line for 2.7 miles.
Scenic Rural Road crosses the Crystal River three times over picturesque stone bridges, offering pleasant vistas of agricultural and forest areas. Emmons Creek Road crosses a spring-fed trout stream and passes through several stands of native pine and hardwoods.
There are a few places to safely pull over in this area, but keep in mind this is at an intersection and there are plenty of people who see this road as nothing more than a open stretch of country road to floor it. (If you want evidence of this - at the time of placement you can see where someone almost missed the last turn on R24 before the intersection and slammed into a stop ahead sign and sand barrel).
Please be sure this cache is secure when replacing it. Happy Hunting!
Congrats to Gram&Gramps on the FTF!
