Mississippi Valley Night Lights
In Wisconsin, United States
How Geocaching Works
This is a night cache, so make sure you have a light and extra batteries. Follow the tacks.
The posted coordinates are for the parking lot at the trailhead. Cross the little bridge and start up the trail. A little over 500 feet and you will see a tree of three. Then you know you are on the right trail. Follow the fire tacks to the cache.
The trail is an easy climb, but long. The trail is wide most of the way. There are a couple steep parts, so watch your step. No real bush wacking required.
To get to the cache, at elevation 1088 and the bench, turn left and go down the hill trail near the tree of three.
STOP – Decision time – do I go for the cache right now, or go for a gorgeous view of the city at night? I would go for the view first. For an additional adventure and a great view, follow the trail to the right, following the additional fire tacks. When you get to the sign South Fork Trail, follow the tacks left and go about 300 feet to elevation 1212. Now go back and find the cache.
This is a city park, so it closes at 11:00. There are other caches up here if you haven’t already found them. But I would look for those in the day. Except one that is just off the trail to the top view.
