This cache is part of a series intended to showcase Wisconsin’s Rustic Roads (W.R.R.). Wisconsin Legislature established the Rustic Roads program in 1973 to preserve what remains of Wisconsin's scenic, lightly traveled roads.
These caches are usually hidden in the right of way at a spot of notable beauty with no bushwhacking required. Chances for muggles are low, but please be respectful of private property, protected lands, and the overall history of the area. Take your time, mind your speed, and most of all… enjoy your journey along the road less traveled.
This particular cache is hidden along Rustic Road 72., a partial paved, but mostly gravel road. Also known as Mountain Road, it begins at its intersection with County M and proceeds in a southerly then easterly direction until its intersection again with County M. Total length is 3.1 miles.
R72 offers great wildlife and wildflower viewing in a serene setting. It passes through the middle of 270 acres owned by the Nature Conservancy. It is home to many birds including sandhill cranes, short-eared owls, northern bobwhite quail, and pheasants. The traveler will encounter an abundance of wildflowers bordering the roadway including may apple, trillium, Canada anenome, wild geraniums, Soloman’s seal, wild roses, and goldenrods.
Please take care with retrieving and replacing the cache to save the experience for the next cacher. Happy hunting!
CONGRATS to MuddyBottoms on the FTF!
