Geocache Description:

A Solvable-On-Site cache. All info you need is located at the posted coordinates.

The posted coordinates will bring you to a small historical sign describing a limestone kiln constructed in 1881 by Samuel Oakley of River Falls. Remnants of the old kiln are right in front of you as you read the sign. Take a few moments and check out the kiln – it’s pretty interesting. (Side bar: this kiln is quite small in comparison to those in nearby Red Wing, MN near Barn Bluff. Check out DOC’s caches down there – it’s a great spot.)

The trail along the lower part of the Kinni will bring you right to the cache. A very scenic and pleasant walk. There are a number of access points to the trail – coordinates for one of them are posted below.

Read the limestone kilns sign you find to gather up the information for the final coordinates for the cache.

The FINAL coordinates are:

N44 50.6AA

W092 38.XXX


AA = Number of hours per day fires burned inside the kiln, minus 10

XXX = Cost of the kiln you see before you (built in 1881), minus 4293

Final cache is a bison tube just a short walk along the Kinni (log only, BYOP). A beautiful view of the river from this spot. Use stealth as needed and have fun!
