jREST: Have had a lot of trouble with this one going missing all the time. Trying something different, hope this idea works a bit better. Still a good place to get out of the weather.

Geocache Description:

The Luce Line Trail was originally built as the Electric Short Line Railway from downtown Minneapolis to west central Minnesota by Colonel William Luce.

Somewhat hampered by financial constraints, the line was slowly expanded. In 1927, it reached its western most point at Gluek, Minn., which was referred to by employees as "the coast."

The Luce Line angles across Hale Township, from the northeast corner to the southwest corner. This township was named either for an early settler, or for John P. Hale, the candidate for US president in 1852.

A shelter has been built in a wooded area next to the trail in section 31 of Hale Township.

The beacon will be obvious, and there are only a few places for a hide. You are looking for a micro container, but you will be able to get out of the weather if you need to - hope that helps. A nice easy walk to ground zero, might be a bit of a long one, 1/2-mile from either end (Cr-71 or Kale). There is road side parking.

A snowy winter won't make it too hard, in fact this might be a nice place to get out of the snow for a bit, enjoy the walk.
