Prairie Overlook aka Di's cache
An andrewmcc/William O'Brien cache
This cache is placed at the highest point in the park. According to my Garmin 60gsx it is at 1000'. From here you can see the St Croix river valley and into Wisconsin. In the fall this is the place to be. The St Croix river valley is known for the fall color.
The cache is next to a beautiful hiking trail that you can start from the visitor center but in the winter you can only use the trail with skis, you CAN NOT hike on the groomed ski trail. There is a shorter way to get to the cache that has a short 80' climb. See the parking coordinates below.
When I asked Diane Hedin the park naturalist where a good place to put a cache in the park. This is the place one HAD to go! So she gets credit in the cache name.
This cache has been approved by the William O'Brien park staff and the Minnesota DNR
