Geocache Description:

MGA11

Welcome to the 8th Annual Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2011, a geocaching game placed by MiGO members in partnership with the Huron-Clinton Metroparks. The theme for this year's adventure is "Get Out and Play" In order to complete the series, you will need to find the 11 caches hidden in the different Metroparks.

For links to all of the caches in the series please see Click Here

Inside the cover of each Geocache you will find two words. These are to be circled on a Word Search puzzle found on the Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2011 Brochure found here .  We will be holding a geocachers picnic at Kensington Metropark on September 10.  Watch the Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2011 Picnic Page for more details.

The cache is located less than 30 feet from the trail so bushwhacking further than that is not necessary and is discouraged to reduce impact on the environment. Please park at the coordinates shown in the Waypoint table and start your walk at the Trail head coordinates.

Just East of the cache, the Detroit River empties into Lake Erie.   During the prohibition era, the Detroit River was better known as the "Whiskey River" due to the incredible amount of illegal hooch that crossed over it from Canada.

Though the days of rum-runners, and dry laws are long over, the mouth of Whiskey River and its delta provide countless adventures here in the park, its marsh, and the nearby islands.

Three miles of Lake Erie shoreline offer you exceptional views of Sugar, Celeron, and numerous unnamed islands, as well as spectacular fishing. The park's 18-hole golf course, its "Great Wave" swimming pool, Marshlands Museum & Nature Center, boat launches, and miles of nature trails offer great opportunities to Get Out and Play!
