During the winter you have to park at the visitors center and hike down to the cache. That is why I changed the terrain rating

Alice's Rest

An andrewmcc/William O'Brien State Park cache

THIS CACHE IS IN WILLIAM O'BRIEN STATE PARK, PARK FEE REQUIRED 

 

Lake Alice is named for Alice O'Brien. In 1945 Alice memorialized her father, lumber baron William O'Brien, by donating 180 acres of his former estate to establish the area as a State Park.

This 26-acre lake is as deep as nine feet in some places. Natural springs feed the north end of the lake, keeping it free of green algae during the dogdays of late summer. The Lake Alice fishing pier is a popular spot to catch a variety of fish, including blue gills, crappies, smallmouth bass and whit bass. Bald eagles and ospreys often fish along the shores of Lake Alice.

This cache has been approved by the William O'Brien State Park Staff and the DNR.

A special thanks to Randy and Diane for letting me work with them with their geocaching program and getting this cache published.

If you have any questions or comments about this cache please forward them to andrewmcc, I am solely responsible for this cache.
