Geocache Description:


We can’t resist the call of the open road. Give us a blue highway or a muddy path to who-knows-where. We don’t really care where we’re going. We don’t really need a why, either. Road trips are all about seeing what happens when you get there. Finding a whole new world with each winding turn of the road. Discovering beautiful unknown countryside. We want an adventure! We want to take the


Road Trip Route!


You will love exploring the picturesque canyons nestled among scenic mesas of Blaine County. Rock hop your way to the cache 28 and take advantage of the spectacular photographic opportunities found there. Drive back south towards rural farms and ranches and be rewarded with awe-inspiring views of the slowly undulating landscapes all around.

This is a series of caches circling the center of Blaine County. Starting in Hitchcock, Oklahoma off County Road E0720, you will travel west along a paved road that will become a gravel road to County Road N2550 , heading south becoming a paved road to state highway 51A, turning east onto County Road E0770. Following to state highway 8 twisting back north towards Hitchcock, Oklahoma.


Roman Nose State Park is in the middle of entire route! Once a favorite area of the Cheyenne tribe, this area is a scenic retreat set on a canyon bluff that overlooks ancient mesas. Towering cedars, buffalo grass, and wild blue sage add to the beauty of the legendary setting. Pack a picnic lunch and take advantage of a great photo-op in the park.

County Road E0720 is a forgotten backroad, some of these caches you just stop on the road to find. The rest of the caches were placed near or by either a driveway, a road shoulder or a turn-off intersection. I wanted the run to be as safe and less muddy as possible. So please look for these as your hunting the caches to pull your geocar off the roads. Please do not cross any fences while geocaching, there will be some no trespassing signs posted, but all caches are not placed on other side fence.

Please bring your own writing stick to sign logs. When signing logs, please sign only the date and your geoname to leave room for future geocashers. Abusing logs will get your log deleted. Please post on geocaching.com any fun stories, or how long it took you to go cache to cache to completing the run. There are three types of containers-pill bottles, small square lock-n-lock and rectangle lock-n-lock. Travel bugs and coins can be traded in the small containers.

Since they are placed in canyon area, please use caution! There are wild animals in the area, several local farmers warned me of snakes! I placed caches away from tall grassy areas, please scan your surroundings. You will also find barbwire by many of the locations, so please watch your children during the fun. To keep the run going, please place caches back in same place as you found. With so many caches on this route, will be hard to maintain, any help will caches will be much appreciated.

Road Trip Route #48 and #58 are located by the entrances to the Roman Nose State Park, if you need a restroom break or use the picinic area. Head south from Route Trip Route #56 towards Watonga, Oklahoma.
