Geocache Description:

Triviality # 5

This cache is part five of a series of caches which will provide a little trivia on the area you are searching. You are searching for a camouflaged bison tube. Please be sure to seal the top with the black o-ring in place and put the cache back in the same spot and manor that it was hidden.


This cache is hidden in the Root River Parkway. This portion of the Root River Parkway, is home to many wild species of animals who “co-exist” alongside people, cars, trucks, dogs, motorcycles, etc. The parkway is part of the Milwaukee County Park System, which contains over 140 parks and parkways totaling nearly 15,000 acres

This is a relatively unknown part of the Root River Parkway. On the Milwaukee County Parks System map (section B 17) it is known as a “Parkway Drive”, sounding a bit oxymoronic. If you look across the river in certain spots, you can see there is another road, almost parallel to this one. Its name? Root River Parkway!

The nearby soccer field can be full of cars, adults and kids during certain times of the year. They probably won’t even notice you.

Be sure to glance at the lovely gardens to the west. (DO NOT TRESSPASS.) The incredible yard is owned by a former Boerner Botanical Garden employee.

We even found a youtube video that showcases the area you are in. Notice the end of the clip and the soccer field to the right side.
