Geocache Description:

It's an off-trail quest into a little-traveled, but pretty area bordered on two sides by small streams. It's a peaceful spot to watch the water flow by--even in winter the streams don't freeze so no crossing over on the ice. The cache is well-hidden but the bushwhacking isn't too bad.


Take a 1.5 mile hike to this out-of-the way, but scenic spot in the Brooklyn Wildlife Area. While not an actual island its location between two running streams can make it difficult to reach. Navigate carefully or you can end up on the wrong side of a stream and unable to cross. The streams don't freeze in winter and it's very pretty with the running water framed by snow and ice. The nearest parking is a gravel lot on Bellbrook Road at N42° 52.7295 W89° 28.2412. Since this is in a popular public hunting area please wear blaze orange and be aware of the hunting seasons. You're looking for a medium-sized, well-camouflaged cache. The Geocache Notification Form has been submitted to Mike Foy of the Wisconsin DNR. Geocaches placed on Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource managed lands require permission by means of a notification form. Please print out a paper copy of the notification form, fill in all required information, then submit it to the land manager. The DNR Notification form and land manager information can be obtained at: www.wi-geocaching.com/hiding http://www.wi-geocaching.com/hiding
