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. 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 a matchstick container hidden along Rustic Road 7, a mostly paved, partial dirt road in Kewaunee County. It begins at its intersection County Highway AB as Pine Grove Rd. and proceeds west, turns north onto Sleepy Hollow Rd., turns west again on Krok Rd., and then proceeds in a northerly direction as Hrabik Rd. (the unpaved section where the cache is placed) until meeting up with State Highway 29. Total length is 3.5 miles.
This route wanders past the remains of an old lime kiln, travels through glacial deposits and over a narrow rustic bridge, and affords views of an old German home, an old flour mill, and several picturesque barns.
Some friendly tips: You should be able to pull over near GZ safely, depending on the recent weather you might want to be cautious about the edges so you don’t get stuck. Also, my caches are usually always camo'd to fit in with the surroundings in some way, not with duct tape.
Please be respectful of private property and take care with retrieving and replacing the cache to save the experience for the next cacher. Happy hunting!
