Geocache Description:



There is no cache located at the posted coordinates. You can obtain the coordinates by visiting the other caches in the series and using the formulas below

Grundy Canyon series is located on Rusk County land. This series encompasses a canyon, felsenmeer, and waterfall. Grundy Canyon is a very unique area with much to offer but does require a long walk and some very rough terrain. Bring food and extra water. Please take pictures and enjoy this unique area.

This cache was made to celebrate the conquering of Grundy Canyon and the Devils Kettle Caches. Every year I go through and maintain these caches. I don't think I have yet to take the same way through twice.

When I went through to set up this cache, the total distance by foot was just under 7.5 miles. Over a mile of it is from the Devils Kettle cache down County Road W and down to the end of Slack Road. Total ascent on my elevation plot was 586 feet. 6.35 miles if you park two vehicles. We have put on 8 plus miles in here before. Especially on the first run of caches we placed.

Advice: If you normally need one bottle of water, bring 2. Don't forget some snacks. I do recommend more than one person but this last time I just had my two black labs, Pepper and Oariey.

Overall, this is my favorite area to go hiking and if you take your time and take advantage of this adventure you will enjoy this very unique area.

The equations below will give you the final coordinates. Each cache has a number written in it in multiple places.

A= Round Peg Square Hole - 3
B= Cascading Waterfall + 1
C= Felsenmeer - 1
D= Field Trail - 3
E= Is there really a canyon in here? + 5
F= Found a Pine + 2
G= Devils Kettle + 4

Final Coordinates are at:
N45 29.ABC
W091 3D.EFG

I modified the the container to make it more fitting of a 5/5. You will need some patience and maybe a special tool to get the log out of the container. I did it several times and twice with just my fingers so it is field tested.
We hope you enjoy this series and give yourself a pat on the back, you earned it!
