Geocache Description:


Sibley County’s High Island Creek Park is basically in its natural state. Only the picnic area has been developed. The names derived from the creek that meanders through the park for some 3,000 feet. The High Island Creek eventually enters the Minnesota River several miles downstream – north of the community of Henderson. Because of the creek valley, the park’s topography varies from gently rolling to steep slopes and in some areas sheer cliffs. Most of the park presents heavily wooded virgin acreage with the trees being typical of the varieties found in Minnesota’s hardwood forests.

Access to the park is from the north. It may be reached by traveling east on CSAH 12 from it’s junction with State Highway 5 (1/2 mile north of Arlington) for approximately 6 miles. (watch for park signs) or by traveling north from Henderson on CSAH 6 to CSAH 12 (approximately 2.5 miles north of Henderson) and then west on CSAH 12 for approximately 3 miles. (Watch for park signs)

Details

Caching the day with King Boreas and IncredibleMagpie and we ended up over in this County Park. Sounds like IncredibleMagpie had been in here before and on a tour of the area we went. Lets go up there "Yeah Right". So, UP, UP and then UP some more we went. Glad we did, there were some great views, on this excellent adventure.

Cache is on a bluff that looks over a tributary of High Island Creek.

Walking over and up to this cache will be interesting, finding it could be a bit of a trick too, even though it is a regular size container. There is a trail that leads up along the ridge line, but it is not marked very well. Enjoy the views from up on the bluff as you are walking around, but be careful. "Yeah Right", there are spots that are a long way down.


Now all you have to do is head out and hunt this one up.

CACHE ON!!!
