We'll be upfront and tell you this is not our favorite sized container to place....a micro. Still, on rare occasions they do have their place, and this is one of those.

Come find this small black taped pill container, which should be easier to find than to replace its log, then enjoy the spectacular view, which is the real reason we've brought you here. Trempealeau Mountain is one of only three solid rock islands in the entire Mississippi River. It rises steeply 425 feet above the Mississippi and Trempealeau Rivers, which surround it. Early navigators, such as steamboat captains, and earlier still, the French explorers and fur traders and Native Americans, used it as a navigational aid. Today, it is a State Natural Area which can be reached only by canoe or kayak from the boat landing here in the park.

In all seasons save winter, this should be a wheelchair accessible cache to all handicachers. Absolutely, please approach this only from the listed parking coordinates, remaining on the wooden ramp. Also, please remain on the observation deck and don't be tempted to clamber down the rocks in the signed closed area beyond the deck. There is no need to enter this fragile ecological environment in order to find this cache. We thank you, the park staff thanks you and so does the landscape.

Special thanks to Lois Larson of the Wisconsin DNR for permission to place this geocache. Geocaches placed on Wisconsin Department of Natural Resouce managed lands require permission by means of a notification form.
