Geocache Description:

The drive to the location is a winding, single-wide lane that may require a 4-wheel drive car in the winter, but the walk is short with some tricky steps at the top, but not too many steps. Even if you don't climb up to the top, its a wonderful place.

Whether you are visiting the area for the covered bridges or for a tour of John Wayne's birthplace, stop by this location for a lovely drive to an interesting getaway and the view is beautiful from the top. Follow the signs to the city park and stop by the covered bridge at the entrance if you like. Then follow the one way road deep into the park until you reach the top. Stop there and enjoy the sites before heading back - the trip back down is much shorter. Bring your picnic lunch in nice weather and the kids will enjoy the playground at the end of the drive back down from the top. (Note: sometimes the mosquitoes can be bad at the playground during certain times of the year, so you may want to bring your pest repellent, too.) The use of stone structures in the park is very nice and its one of our favorite places to take the kids, so we thought we'd share it with our geocaching friends. Enjoy!!! Quick note: The road to this location closes at sunset, so please plan accordingly. Better to enjoy this cache during the daytime, anyway.
