Geocache Description:

You are looking for a camo match container. Lots of traffic in the park but cache can be logged without attracting too much attention. Winter friendly

This cache is one of a series called "The trail of the serpent" based loosely on a book of the same title written in 1973 by Robert E. Gard and Elaine Reetz. All of these caches will be located along the Fox river from it's source south of Kingston to the mouth of the Fox River in Green Bay. As the infant Fox runs northeast from the Portage, it glides and twists through fertile meadows, broadens into small lakes until it finds itself in the broad sweep of Lake Winnebago. Lake Winnebago acts as the dam for the lower Fox which continues on to Green Bay in a wide flood, tumbling over chutes now made into dams, becoming one big scene of power development for the growth of its towns. "For us," said a famous Indian, "This river was a path. For our white brethren, to whom we sold it, it is a power." Loise Phelps Kellogg Berlin has always been a bustling town on the river. I don't believe that there is a nicer park anywhere along the Fox river then Riverside park in Berlin. Excursions used to run from Berlin both directions to Portage or to Oshkosh and Green Bay. The Berlin Boat Club has kept the river clean and runs the Eureka lock, the upper most active lock on the river. A new veterans memorial has been added to the park since the cache was placed and is only about 100' from the cache. Check that out while you are in the park also. It was dedicated in 2006.
