Geocache Description:



The view in the photo above is what most travelers have of Rattlesnake Mound as they make their way along Highway 13 to or from Adams-Friendship. The photo was taken at the height of the tamarack color in the fall, but the view is scenic at all times of the year.

If you have ever wondered what the back side of the mound looks like, you can drive all the way from Edgewood to Dyke on 14th Court, which becomes 14th Drive... or you can reverse the route, if you so choose. The road is paved except for a three-quarters of a mile section of gravel in the middle of your drive.

There are houses and structures along parts of this route. The ones at the southern end are in the open because of a tornado that came through in June of 2004, and you can see this damage on the mound, too. A defunct cranberry operation is to the west at this point. For the remainder of the route, Rattlesnake Mound is less visible due to the tree cover and your closeness to it, but when the leaves aren't on the oaks, you can see some of the rock outcroppings. This is privately owned land, so do not venture east here. To the west, however, much of the land is part of the Quincy Bluff and Wetlands State Natural Area, and it is open to public use, if you would like to find a parking area to get out and explore.
