Geocache Description:

Located along the bluffs of the Mississippi River, the view is outstanding but the trail can be treacherous. When waters are running heavy, you may need to enter the cave to cross the creek.

Take the south trail from the nearby parking lot for a more adventurous experience with a fabulous view of the river. The cache itself is near Black Hawk's spring, where the great warrior had often sought cool fresh water. Check out the plaque near the spring.

During the leafy season, be prepared to hunt harder as your GPS may not function well in the area of the cache.
