Geocache Description:


This unnamed point, which is reached from Prickly Pear Flat, sits above the confluence of Pine Canyon and Calf Canyon. The hike starts at a wooden barricade across the road on Prickly Pear Flat, but getting there from the graded road on Big Flat will require a high-clearance 4WD vehicle, ATV, motorcycle, bicycle, or sturdy boots. There are a couple of really ugly spots along the road. Some routefinding will be required during the hike, but any route you choose will have great scenery along the way.

The cache is right out on the end of the point, though not too close to the edge. It's hidden under a pile of rocks under the edge of a knee-high pinyon pine. The view down into Pine and Calf canyons is amazing and well worth the hike. Click here to see some photos from my hike.
