This was one of 12 caches placed in the CSI series. When it began, prizes could be won for finding the whole series.
There is no final stage anymore but any cache left counts as an individual find.
The Headlands was established in the late 1950's when Roger McCormick hired a helicopter and dropped 50lb. sacks of flour to mark the boundaries of a property he desired to purchase, and thus it became the Roger McCormick Estate. The Park contains approximately 550 acres of pristine woodlands, more than two miles of undeveloped Lake Michigan shoreline and many species of rare and endangered plant life. Visitors to the Headlands may experience sightings of the many wild animals native to the area including: bald eagles, osprey, white tail deer, wild turkeys, coyotes and occasionally a black bear. Marked nature trails guide hikers, bicyclists, cross-country skiers, and nature photographers to experience the park throughout the changing seasons. This park also offers 2 facilities for rent through the Emmet County Parks Department. Information about this park and the rentals can be obtained at the following web site. http://www.co.emmet.mi.us/parkrec/headlands.htm
Please refer to the map of this property. A copy of such is attached to this cache page, and it will also be available on the board when you enter the property.
The 50mm ammo can is located along the “public beach” area on Lake Michigan, which is in between the 2 rental facilities. PLEASE do not encroach upon those facilities. Any folks that might be staying there have paid good money to do so, and their privacy should be respected.
