White Oak Dinosaur Hunting
In Iowa, United States
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The cache is a traditional, camouflaged micro (bison tube) located along a mostly abandoned and very quiet stretch of White Oak Avenue. Although posted as a Level B service road, this stretch is probably closer to Level C in terms of maintenance and usage. Although the road is in relatively good shape, it appears to be very seldomly used and is mostly just two tire paths in the weeds. Drive this road at your own risk, especially after rain.
Instead of driving, this is a very peaceful road for a short hike or mountain bike ride. It would make a nice extension from the Hoover Trail at Oasis, which is approximately one-half mile away. We suspect that only a few vehicles use this road in any given week, so traffic and muggles should not be a problem. We suggest parking at the designated coordinates along Fairview Cemetery Road. It will be approximately 1 mile round-trip to the cache.
To find the cache, you will need to use your best paleontology skills as you search for the elusive White Oak Dinosaur. It is known to inhabit this stretch of road, which itself is sort of a fossil. The White Oak Dino is known to inhabit trees and brush.
The terrain approaching the cache is mostly level until the last few feet. Hunt this cache at your own risk, but most importantly, have fun.
