Geocache Description:

This cache is one of a series of caches along an ATV and snowmobile Trail in the Chippewa County Forest. These caches are accessible by hiking but can also be utilized by those that like to combine ATVing and geocaching. If you are atving please follow the county rules by staying on the trails, parking the ATV alongside the trail and approach the cache by hiking. Remember to stay on the trail or we will lose it.

Chippewa County ATV Trail: Chippewa County welcomes ATV'ers to enjoy over 15 miles of ATV trails through the Chippewa County Forest. The hills, valleys and challenging terrain of the trail, were created by the action of glaciers, many thousands of years ago. This glacial topography is what makes this area ideal for ATV riding. The rider will be challenged with steep hills and valleys as the trail winds past small lakes and beaver ponds, as well as spectacular vistas and abundant wildlife. The Chippewa County ATV Trail is normally open to ATV riding from May 1st to November 15th of each year, except in case of emergency, when the County may close and gate the trail. Be cautious on this two-way trail.
Parking for the trail is on Hwy M, 2 miles west of Hwy CC, and just north of 225th Avenue on 157th St. (2 miles east of HWY AA)
Chippewa County Forest: The 33,000-acre Chippewa County Forest offers a wide range of outdoor recreation opportunities. Much of the forest is located within the glaciated terminal moraine, created by the former Wisconsin Glacier. It consists of oak, aspen, and hardwood stand on the uplands, interspersed with wetlands and lakes in the low-lying areas. The rolling topography offers some excellent terrain for a variety of recreational trails. The Hickory Ridge and River Road cross-country ski trails are located in the forest, with over 12 miles between them. Within the County Forest, is a portion of the 360 miles of county snowmobile trails. For the horseback rider, there are over 22 miles of horse trails. There are 19 miles of ATV trails. Over half of the 18-plus miles of Ice Age Hiking Trail in Chippewa County, are located within the County Forest. In addition, there are many miles of old logging trails that offer additional hiking opportunities. Hunting, camping, and berry picking are also popular activities.

This cache is on the southern portion of the ATV trail system. It is a micro containing a log only. BYOP I am giving this a 3 star for difficulty because of the distance from parking for hikers. It is about 3 miles (by the ATV trail from auto parking at Bass Lake)
