This cache is part of a series (initiated by BakRdz) intended to showcase Wisconsin's Rustic Roads (WRR). The Wisconsin Legislature established the Rustic Roads program in 1973 to preserve what remains of Wisconsin's scenic, lightly traveled roads. For a current listing of Wisconsin Rustic Roads, check out this web page.
These caches are usually hidden in the right of way at a spot of notable beauty with no bushwhacking required. Please be respectful of private property, protected lands, and the overall history of the area. Take your time, mind your speed, and most of all, enjoy your journey along the road less traveled. As always, we welcome any photos you would like to share of your journey along this particular rustic road.
The cache on Bundy Hollow Road is a camoed soda bottle preform hidden along the northern portion of Wisconsin's newest (as of this cache publication) rustic road. The almost 3-mile drive takes you on paved surfaces between County G on the south and South Dutch Hollow Road on the north. Most of the road is open farm land with homes and farm buildings along its route. We witnessed the magnificent flight of a rough-legged hawk on the southern part of this road the day we placed this cache in mid-winter.
The northern part of Bundy Hollow Road is more wooded with hills and curves to add a slight challenge to your trip. The cache location is not far from the "400" State Trail if you are on your bicycle, although you will have to work harder and ride carefully on the roads leading to the cache after you leave the trail in LaValle.
From the WRR web site: "R-112 is a picturesque road in the town of La Valle that slopes and curves between the hills. The views from the road alternate between pastures and croplands with wooded hillsides. The woods, fields and wetlands along Bundy Hollow Road provide a habitat for many birds and other wildlife."
You can read the local story about the nomination and designation of WRR 112 in the related web page link at the top of this cache page.
