“Echo Canyon Summit” (GC18C9B) takes geocachers to a vista over looking Scottsdale, Phoenix, and a kaleidoscope of desert colors in Arizona, U.S.A.
The micro cache is rated a difficulty 3 and a terrain 3.5. Hands-On Cachers hid the geocache in January of 2008. The first line of the cache notes reinforces the high terrain rating. It reads, “Strenuous hike up Camelback Mountain.”
You’re also warned to watch out for muggles. This hiking path is a high traffic area. The cache owner says it’s the muggles in the area that increase the difficulty rating for “Echo Canyon Summit.”
Still, more than 100 geocachers have found the bison tube cache. The hike is even suitable for athletic children. The cache owner does warn about the desert heat if you attempt this cache in the summer.
