Collins Gulch Mine
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Special History in Cache! Park at waypoint given which is at 1.5K on the Blakeburn Road. Follow the rugged old Wagon Road. Good idea to do the Bear's Den Mine (GC2C3ZD) first as it's on the way.
Quad OK almost all the way, but carry a chainsaw in case of deadfalls. The last two hundred metres are very narrow and a Jeep didn't make it and is at the bottom of the Gulch at the waypoint given, so you might want to park just before that and hike in. The last 60 metres or so you will have to hike in any case. If you hike, it is about 6km and the trail is steep and rises about 300m. Make sure you close the cattle gate after you, both going in and coming back out. There is a lovely picnic area on the main trail (also a waypoint). At about 4km. there is a 4-way intersection (waypoint) where you go straight ahead (ie West).
7" x 5" x 3" Clear Loc-N-Loc. Items left: toy car, pliers, steel blade, tire clock, toy race car, two 2011 50 cent pieces for F-T-F, plus logbook, history, pen and pencil.
BEAR COUNTRY - DO NOT PLACE SCENTED ITEMS OR FOODSTUFFS IN CACHE (even if sealed)
