Geocache Description:

Much easier to get to from above, but the trail below is a lot more enjoyable.

Havin' fun at the Hoopla, figured an extra cache would come in handy. Have fun.


Crosby park is named after Thomas Crosby, an English immigrant who staked out 160 acres in the valley southwest of the present-day junction of Shepard Road and Interstate 35E in 1858. Before Crosby's death in 1886, the farm became one of the largest and longest running in the West End and Highland Park area. A succession of families farmed it between 1902 and 1962. The Saint Paul Port Authority purchased the land in the early 1960s and leased it to the City for park use. Today, Crosby's potential as a nature area accessible to the public may be realized.

Special Note:
The Park will be CLOSED for an Archery Hunt scheduled:
October 19-21
November 9-11

Crosby Farm Park is a really cool place, with lots of trails and great views. Enjoy this one and you might just as well walk around the lake.
