Bring your camera and pack your binoculars, this location has an incredible view!
This cache is not a walk in the park, so to speak, you will need a car to access this location. And, with winter here to stay, please dress warm and where proper winter footwear. "Ice Walkers" aren't necessary but are recommended for those who may not feel comfortable walking on slippery snow or ice. There are many retailers in town that sell and/or rent ice walkers.
Please do not place any trade items in this container - We prefer that visitors focus on the location of the cache and story that the cache will communicate, rather than trade items. This will also prevent a cache from containing items that may attract wildlife.
