Geocache Description:

Located in Cedar Bend Park, north of Waverly, this is a CITO Cache area. This cache is registered the Bremer County Conservation Board.

Depending on when you search for this cache, you will have a much longer hike than at other times of the year because vehicle access is restricted in the winter.

The closest parking to the cache is approximately 2/3 of a mile [as the crow flies] when the gate at the camping area is locked. When the gate at the county road entrance is locked, it will be even longer. Even with this being the case, it is an easy walk on established roadways.

The coordinates listed above are for a bench overlooking the Cedar River. From here, you need to go down the stairway, counting the steps. Use the total number of steps to determine the final coordinates of the cache. Number of steps = ab

Final coordinates for the cache: N 42 4a.613 W092 29.4b9

The container is a Coleman water jug. Original contents include logbook & pencil, 2 homemade wooden cross necklace kits, 2 WWJD bracelets, 2 boxes wooden matches, toy whistle, some Pokemon toys, plastic dinosaur rings and a rubber ducky.

Please take care to replace the cache carefully in it's hiding place. Thanks!
