Geocache Description:

This is a six stage cache that will take you along a former logging spur of the Marathon County Railroad.


This is the long awaited second cache a series documenting historic logging railroads of Wisconsin. Parking is located at N44 48.058 W89 48.530.

The waypoint containers made of 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe wraped in camo tape. One end has a rubber cap that can be removed. Inside there is a sheet giving some history on the location or the railroad as well as the next coordinate. The final cache container is a used 20mm cannon munitions canister.

The cache contains the standard log book additional history and a disposable camera to photo your group with. There are also various trade items such a a railroad toy set, mini railroad spikes from the narrow gage railroad I volunteer at, a CD of railroad music, a book on steam locomotive care and operation as well as various railroad postcards and magnets.

This is a designated ATV area so you may do your hunting from your bike, or on foot. Hunting is also allowed here, so dress appropriatly when in season. The trails are closed to ATVs durring the months of October, November and April.

I hope you enjoy this cache as much as I did researching and hiding it.
