Geocache Description:

Located on the beautiful Sac & Fox Trail in SE Cedar Rapids and approximately .85 mile from parking, you're looking for a matchstick container. This trail is closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Please use extreme stealth on this one as hikers, joggers, and bikers frequent the trails and this cache doesn't give you cover from the trail! BYOP

From the looks of the debris present and given the bend in the creek here, I'm guessing this is a path of least resistance when the creek floods.

Located on East Post Rd. in SE Cedar Rapids, you'll find the Sun Valley Trailhead of Sac & Fox Trail. 7.2 miles in length, this well maintained trail runs along Indian Creek and is not only a scenic place for an afternoon hike, jog, or bike ride, it is teeming with wildlife. Chances are if you use a little bit of stealth you will come across deer, rabbits, and squirrels at some point in your journey along the trail, not to mention being serenaded by a variety of birds and the sounds of the creek.

A great place to spend the afternoon hiking with the family or for some peaceful solitude, you'll find this trail is fairly flat. The trail might be muddy in spots after a heavy rain and Indian Creek is known for flooding as well, so keep this in mind if we are under a flood warning.


Happy Hunting and Good Luck!
