Geocache Description:

Have you got what it takes...

Have you been doing a little "Cache & Release"...

Or maybe you just had "A Busy Day"...

Or are you considered to be a "Master Angler"...

If you do in fact have what it takes then this Challenge is for you!  You see, once we started caching one of my first goals was to "clear out" Busse Woods of all the active caches there.  It seemed to be a rather daunting task at first, but then it became a true challenge and was soon a reality.  Now I can say that this has to be our most favorite Caching Hot Spot in the GONIL area.  For it is here that you will find over 50 caches of varying size, shape, terrain and creativity.  You'll find Puzzles, Traditionals and Multis.  You can hike, fish, jog, bike, picnic, or just go for a little bit of peace and quiet nestled in the middle of the Northwest Suburbs.  This area features over 11 miles of bike trails amongst its 3700 Acres!  Truly a cachers Paradise if you have never been.

So, you may be asking what is the Challenge?  Well here you go... all you need to do is find each "active" cache found within this Bookmark List prior to hunting this cache.  If a cache in the list is temporarily disabled at the time you wish to hunt this cache but you have found all the others, then feel free to go for it.  I am keeping the rules here very simple so let you conscience be your guide and most of all have fun!  We hope during your time here you enjoy this Preserve as much as we do and that you enjoy this location which happens to be near one of my favorite spots here.

The Ned Brown Preserve is a 3700 acre holding located in northwestern Cook County. This preserve, also known as Busse Woods, surrounds Busse Lake, a 590 acre lake that serves as the focal point of the area. The bicycle trail winds through the forests and meadows around Busse Lake providing access to many of the preserves unique features. You can ride through a mature forest past a herd of elk, then head for the lake to watch the sailboats for awhile. If you have your gear along, try catching a northern pike at one of the six fishing walls. There are many opportunities waiting for you, so plan a time today to ride the Busse Woods Bicycle Trail.

The Busse Woods Bicycle Trail is located throughout the Ned Brown Preserve in northwestern Cook County, Illinois. This Class I bicycle trail is currently 11.2 miles long and winds through the meadows and forests around Busse Lake.This trail is not well suited for area residents, but ideal for those riders wishing to drive to the area. You can stop at one of the convenient parking areas then unload your bicycle and ride the winding trail through the preserve.
