Geocache Description:

The cave is located along the south side of the Little Sugar River. near the waters edge. This is now a micro cache container!!

This cache is on public hunting grounds. You will need a flashlight and wear shoes/boots that you can get muddy. The area in front of the cave floods easily and can make this cache inexcessible at times throughout the year. There is a trail that leads you almost all the way there, but it does get a bit overgrown during the later part of the season.

History:
A man named Reuben Folsom used to live in this Cave & hunt wolves in the area. Reuben Moved to the Albany Area from New York State in 1842. He lived in the Area until his death in 1875 & was buried in the Gap Church Cemetery a few miles west of Albany on Highway 59. Contrary to some rumurs, the state did not use any TNT to cause a cavein, but rather it was just nature. This information come from Steven Johnston, Wisconsin DNR Land Manager. If you look closely on the way to the cache you may see the crater on top. More Info.

This cache is located on Public hunting grounds so during hunting season expect hunters to be out & remember its always safest to wear blaze orange! Click here for WI hunting season schedule!!

Wisconsin DNR form 2500-118 has been filed and approved by the DNR Land Manager. All cache sites on state property must be approved by the DNR.

There has been issues in the past with items being placed in the container that do not belong there. This is probably being done by muggles. Please assist me in keeping the cache in proper shape by removing anything that is there that should not. I do not want to have to change to a different container, but will do that to keep this cache in this great location. There are many people that stop here and some are bad muggles, so this cache needs to be returned to where it was found.

A big Thank You goes out to Trekkin' and birdin for nominating this cache for the award!
