Maynes Grove is a wonderful park that offers a little bit of everything. This cache is placed near the observation watchtower and is a great spot to watch and learn about Iowa's birds. It will not be easy to find. Please do not climb underneath the structure in your search as this is not necessary to find the prize. Feel free to search around the ground, the stairs, and the upper observation deck as you like.
Maynes Grove is open from 6 am until 10:30 pm. Please be aware that hunting is allowed in designated areas of the park, and wear blaze orange if you choose to explore the park during hunting seasons. There are garbage cans near the parking areas for you to practice CITO. Thank you to Franklin County Conservation for approving placement of this geocache.
