Geocache Description:

The cache you are looking for is a container about the size of a peanut butter jar that has been dressed to blend in with its surroundings. There is room for small TBs and swag. For the first to find there is a TB dog tag that has not yet been activated.

Three Highways In One

When you get to the site, the highway you see vehicles traveling on is known as the Rhinelander bypass. The bypass was completed in 2004. It is 3.25 miles long. Before the bypass, three highways went right through the city. The highways that now bypass Rhinelander are:

US Highway 8 runs primarily east-west for approximately 280 miles from Norway Michigan across Wisconsin to Forest Lake, Minnesota . US 8 was created with the beginning of the United States Numbered Highway System in 1926.

Wisconsin Highway 17 begins in the South at the intersection of Highways 64 and 17 near Merrill. From there it heads northeast to Rhinelander, then through Sugar Camp and Eagle River and then continues northeastward to the UP border of Michigan where it becomes Forest Route 16.

Wisconsin Highway 47 runs in a diagonal northwest-southeast direction from Manitowish to Menasha. Of its 188 miles, about 76 of them are combined with other highways.

For your safety search for the cache from Boyce Drive rather than from the Highway.
