How Geocaching Works
A micro cache along the Brehmer Creek Trail of the Machickanee Cross Country Ski Trail system. A great place to hike in summer and a place to ski and cache in winter. The Machickanee is a public forest open to all. No walking, snowshoeing or dogs on the groomed trails during ski season.
Machickanee Cross Country Ski Trails were originally planned and developed by local skiers in the Oconto County Forest with the cooperation of the Oconto County Land , Forest , and Parks Committee. The current trail system has resulted from the efforts of many volunteers who have donated their time, money, and energy since 1978. In 1982, the Machickanee Cross The Country Ski Club was formed to organize those efforts. The trails lead through a series of forest types, including red pine plantations, coniferous swamps, oak ridges, and birch and aspen stands. They undulate through topography ranging from creek bottoms to ridge tops. Numerous hills and curves of various slopes and lengths make this course a challenge for the intermediate to advanced skiers. The Machickanee Cross Country Ski Trails also include a beginner loop that can be enjoyed by skiers of all ability levels.
