How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the posted coordinates. Solve the puzzle to find the final location.

This bike ride is a favorite with our family. The Prairie Trail between Crystal Lake and McHenry will give you ample opportunity to catch some long views and big sun. There are restrooms and water available at either end of the ride. You can start from either end, but the final location is beside the trail in Sterne's Woods opposite the tracks (so there's no need to leave bikes unattended or wander onto the rail line). Whispering Oaks Park has a great playground and is close to fast food on 120/W Elm if you didn't bring a picnic.

Benefits of bike-caching: There's always a breeze. Mosquitos can't keep up. Ditto for ticks. Poison ivy? Not unless you fall off - way off.
