How Geocaching Works

The Squaw Creek Park trails are popular with hikers, geocachers, mountain bike riders and horseback riders. However, I don't see many people using the South Loop Trail so I thought I would place a few geocaches along this trail to encourage people to enjoy its beauty.
The South Loop Trail starts in a grassy prairie then winds through areas of dense canopy and small clearings along the creek. It is a wide grassy well maintained trail for easy hiking with no steep hills. It is a great place to spot local wildlife ... birds, insects, turkeys, deer and an occasional fox. The trail ends in a loop about 1.2 miles in, so you hike back out the same way you came in.
This is one of three caches with a "Critter" theme for the South Loop Trail. It is in a densly wooded area on flat ground about 75' from the trail. The hiding spot will be pretty obvious when you get to GZ. I think the critter that occupied this space has vacated, but you might want to look carefully before putting your hand in there to retrieve the container. The container is a small bucket with lots of room for Travel Bugs and other stash. I have included some empty ziplock bags you can use to help keep your stash dry.
