Geocache Description:

Small Peanut Butter Jar wrapped in Camo tape

Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak, she mends me.
I don't have to speak, she defends me.
A drunkards dream if I ever did see.

Park at
N 44 26.237
W 89 45.390

This is well off the trail of the old Consolidated Forest Tour.
This used to be beautiful hiking trail. Unfortunately it hasn't been maintained in at least a decade.
10 years ago, you used to be able to grab a pamphlet by the gate, and it was a self-guided tour. It was educational.

A large section of this woods was destroyed back in the summer of 2000 when an intense storm blew through the area. There was a funnel cloud sighted within 2 miles of this location.

Near the area of the cache there is evidence of a lot of tree cutting as part of the storm cleanup effort. Each of these trees that were cut fell in the storm 10 years ago

Expect your GPS signal to bounce around a bit as the tree canopy overhead is quite dense in places.

The Trail is CLOSED Sunset to Sunrise.
