This cache was formerly named “The Eagles Nest Redux”. I have been asked to move the cache by the Ozaukee County Parks Superintendent, because it was too far off the officially marked trail. Those of you that have found the “Eagles Nest” or “Eagles Nest – Redux” can find this cache in its new location and claim another find! This cache is located within the beautiful Loins Den Gorge Nature Preserve County Park in the town of Grafton. Please respect the area and landscape. Stay off the steep inclines as posted! Park hours are 6:00am to 9:00pm.
As the title states, this cache is located on the Cedar Loop.
The Lions Den is hands down my favorite Ozaukee County Park. When I was a kid, we would ride our BMX bikes on un-groomed trails making our way to the ravine and eventually down to the beach. We would spend our endless summer days swimming, riding on the beach and exploring. Later in life, we would ride mountain bikes over the same trails. Now that the park is developed with its nicely groomed trails and stairs to the beach. I love coming with CC to hike, gaze out at the lake and snap pictures of the beautiful landscape while telling stories of the past. What an awesome place!
