This is a very hard to get to cache, but once you make it you will get a view of Truman Lake that very few have ever seen. There is a small visible trail head on the west side of the road (TOP OF HILL),that will become more visible as you approach the lake. You will pass a small bench continue toward the lake for even a greater view. The cave is actually about 40 feet below you on the rock face, which is visible from below (or water) You can approach this cache from many ways. It can be reached on foot by more experienced hikers. It can be reached from the top by rappelling off the top and into the cave (NOT RECOMMENDED BY ARMY CORP) It can also be reached from the water(G-14 boat ramp paddle back west about .5 miles), taking out the more dangerous parts of the hike. As mentioned this is a cave/tunnel. The safest way by land is go WSW back down the road following the tree line along road. You will come upon a second trail that will lead you to the lake shore. Follow shore back north till you see cave on rock face. THE COOLEST PART IS IF YOU FOLLOW THE ROCK FACE AT THE BOTTOM AROUND NORTH THERE IS A OPENING IN THE FACE (PICTURED). THIS IS THE CAVE ENTRANCE AT GROUND LEVEL. Enter the cave crawl aprox. 20 ft cave turns sharp right, keep crawling another 20 feet YOU ARE ACTUALLY STANDING IN THE CENTER OF ROCK FACE 40 FEET EITHER WAY YOU LOOK UP OR DOWN(second picture is taken looking out of cave toward lake. The actual cache is an ammo can inside the tunnel. This cache can be dangerous allow time and skills!! Approved by Army Corp of Eng. at truman lake
