Geocache Description:

The Yellowstone Trail pretty much follows what is now marked as highway 175. The town of Byron is a community dominated by quarries. The coordinates above will take you to a view over one of the town's largest quarries.

This is one of several caches I have placed along the route of the historic Yellowstone Trail. The trail is a historic motor route that went across Wisconsin from 1918 to 1930. The Wisconsin portion of the Yellowstone Trail is 406 miles long, starting at the state line south of Kenosha and going north, and then west to Hudson. The Wisconsin segment is just a part of one of America’s first transcontinental auto routes, a 3,754-mile long road that started in Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts and went to Puget Sound, Washington.

October 22, 2005 update: In the 1920's many towns along the Yellowstone Trail had a representative known as a “Trailman”, whose duties included providing information to travelers along the way. In the 1919 Yellowstone Trail route folder, Trailmen were described as being “…businessmen of standing in their communities, and will always be glad to welcome tourists and serve them in any reasonable manner.” Marc 54140 has offered to serve as the trailman for the Yellowstone caches in Winnebago and Fon Du Lac counties.
