Geocache Description:

FINLEY’S LANDING PARK.
This is one of the locations included on the Great River Road (GRR) passage of caches. Click here to see map. (Additional details about the GRR passage are given further below in the description.)

Finley’s Landing Park is one of the most scenic Mississippi River access points. This area is located approximately 5 miles north of Sherrill. From the Great River Road a black top (Finley’s landing Road) filled with twist, turns, hills and wildlife leads you to the park. A beach, boat ramp, pavilion, modern campsites, shower/restroom facilities and playground welcomes you. Scenic views of the river await those who follow the nature trails up the rugged bluffs. Year round park ranger is in residence at site.
Public hunting is allowed.

Cache is nice hike. Be sure to take time and enjoy the swinging footbridge and walk on the beach. (Note: The area just beyond the footbridge can get a bit muddy after heavy rains or recent flooding.) Container is a plastic camouflaged coffee can containing high-quality starting-cache prizes. Please return the container to its hiding place with its opening and lid on top.

The GRR passage is a series of caches placed along the scenic Great River Road from Dubuque to McGregor, Iowa. They have been named as “GRRP1…”, “GRRP2…”, etc. (to view all of them, click here or search by keyword “GRRP” on the www.geocaching.com/seek/ webpage). Each of the GRR caches (except for the “GRRPbonus” cache) can be logged as a separate find and may be found in any order.

If you choose to complete the entire GRR passage, you will have the opportunity to find and log a bonus cache also placed along the Great River Road. On the inside of each cache container lid you will find a set of numbers. Write them down along with the numbers from all the other GRR cache containers. When you get all the numbers, they can be added to give you the final coordinates for the bonus cache (see the cache named “GRRPbonus” for additional details). You must visit all of the GRR caches to obtain the information required to complete the series and log the bonus cache. The first to complete the series and find the bonus cache will be reward with a $10.00 bill.
