Geocache Description:

Peninsula State Park

Considered Wisconsin's most complete park, Peninsula offers 468 campsites, three group camps, a summer theater, an 18-hole golf course, sand beach, bike trails, a lighthouse and eight miles of Door County shoreline. The rollicking waves that skip towards Peninsula's sky high bluffs are part of the Niagara Escarpment.

The Lake Michigan shoreline dominates the till plains biome. This biome was shaped by the last glaciation with glacial till left behind forming the landscape of eskers, drumlins and moraines most easily seen within the Kettle Moraine forest units. While this park is not in the Kettle Moraine System, it is closely linked with the other Lake Michigan State Parks.  The lakeshore displays sand dunes that will often adjoin tamarack swamplands.  Close to Lake Michigan’s shores, birds of water such as shorebirds and ducks will be found.  Animal life may include White Tailed Deer and small mammals such as otters and fox.

This cache is placed in a northern mesic (moist soil) forest with beech, white ash, ironwood, hemlock and aspen trees. White-tailed deer, raccoon, gray and red fox, squirrels and raccoons are associated wildlife species. This trail is part of the Vita Course, a trail with exercise stations that was installed in the 1980s. If you continue northeast on the trail for about 1/3 of a mile , you will reach Nicolet Beach.
