NB: Highway 40 is closed from December 1 through June 15 each year.
Just East of the Continental Divide is a regular sized square LnL type container with the usual logbook, pencils, trading items, and a Canadian Geographic carbiner for the first to find!
The cache was placed during a caching trip to several of the newer caches in the area. In fact there are now seven other caches on or near the trail leading to Grizzly Ridge.
Be sure to bring the camera along to capture pictures of the thousands of wildflowers growing along the trail.
We decided to explore the trail to the south along Grizzly Ridge (which led to the placement of this cache) and the views are outstanding. It would be a natural horseshoe to follow Grizzly Ridge to the south, travel through Paradise Valley (some elevation loss 100 - 150 meters), and take the Highwood Ridge back to the Highwood Pass parking area. This wasn't an option during our visit due to the significant quantity of water running through Paradise Valley from the spring run off.
A few of the amazing views from the ridge.
Cachers looking to check out the caches along this trail are reminded to pack appropriate hiking gear, bear spray, water, food, and snacks - it's a demanding, but rewarding hike!
Come out and enjoy a superior ridgewalk and the terrific scenery along the divide!
