Geocache Description:


I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Kinni State Park better and the many trails it has to offer. This one is just off the Green trail (link to trail map below). I seldom see anyone back in this part of the park – hopefully you’ll enjoy the hike and the views of the woods and prairie. Cache is a small, but only has a log – please bring a writing stick with you.

Go here (visit link) for a nice park trail map.

About Kinnickinnic State Park

In one of the Midwest’s most beautiful areas, the St. Croix River Valley, Kinnickinnic State Park offers experiences in two types of worlds. Enjoy the quiet and solitude of the Kinnickinnic River Valley and the surrounding countryside and enjoy the many popular water-based recreational pursuits on the St. Croix River. The park is in Wisconsin's western prairie ecological landscape.

The park includes a beautiful sand delta alive with boats and people enjoying the St. Croix River. Swimming, water skiing, sunbathing, and wind surfing are very popular. Boaters wishing to moor overnight are charged a nominal fee and typically spend star-lit evenings around a campfire on the beach.

The valley of the Kinnickinnic River, a cold water trout stream, is a rare sanctuary with majestic white pines and sheer limestone cliffs. In addition to having an excellent brown trout population, the Kinnickinnic valley is a haven for birds and other wildlife. More than 140 species of birds frequent the valley during the migrating season. Have your camera ready to capture that deer sneaking up the valley, painted turtle slipping off his log, or even a mink searching for food along the banks of the river.

At the tops of the bluffs, the upland portion of the park offers still more enjoyment. Unwooded portions of the park are being restored to prairie plants which flourished before white settlers came with their horses and plows. The park has 1,242 acres and is composed of a wide diversity of plant and animal life.

The Geocache Notification Form has been submitted to Kelli Bruns, manager of Kinnickinnic State Park. Geocaches placed on Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources managed lands require permission by means of a notification form. Please print out a paper copy of the notification form, fill in all required information, then submit it to the land manager. The DNR Notification form and land manager information can be obtained at the Wisconsin DNR website.
