Geocache Description:

Located near Muskellunge fire lookout tower in Vilas County. The cache offers an excellent view of the countryside. You will be able to drive to within about 100 feet of the cache. ** Update, apparently they've restricted vehicular access to the top. The terrain rating has been increased to reflect that it's no longer a walk up cache. ***

The cache is located near the Muskellunge Fire lookout Tower. The tower was used, until recently, to look for forest fires. Within the past 6 years, 2 radio towers were constructed on top the hill. The closest tower was constructed within the past year.

Check out the osprey next on the microwave dish of the red/white tower.

The cache is a smaller ammo can.

Please be sure to leave the cache exactly as you found it.

*** 7/19/06 UPDATE: Hinge on the cache is damaged. please be careful when opening and closing the box. Make sure you rehide it rightside up.
