Geocache Description:

This series of caches is brought to you by Ogeo, ISplash, lleckman and midgetmaniac. There are 29 caches: 3 others, 15 Regular, 3 Small, and 8 micros. It is best to start with number one at Lenore and end up at Peck. That way the puzzle final and the multi caches finals will be in order that you need to go.

You will have some great views, some of the river below, some of farm land and some of canyons. At least one place you will be able to see Dworshak Dam.  

Before starting the trail, either do the puzzle at home or go to the waypoint by Lenore Bridge to figure the final coords.

Clean and Warm Public Bathrooms can be found at the Lenore Rest Area.

4 wheel drive recommended when snow is on the ground. 

Some interesting facts:

Ghosts of America website:  Lenore and Peck are both listed on the website. There have been strange things going on in many small towns surrounding this area.  Be very careful while you do this route.  LOL. 
Lewis and Clark:  “The return trip in 1806 brought the Corps of Discovery up the Clearwater River to Canister Creek (Jacks Creek at Lenore, Idaho) near where they had camped the year before. They went up onto the Camas Prairie (south side of the Clearwater River), down to the Creek Small (Little Canyon Creek at Peck, Idaho) then up across the prairie and down into the Nez Perces’ Camp (Kamiah, Idaho).”  
Peck:  The community was named for George Peck who was a railroad official.
Lenore Tram:  In 1898 a cable loop tram was built after the railroad reached Lenore so that wheat could be shipped by rail car.  The tram reached from 1600 feet above to across the river.  By 1903, 100,000 bushels were sent down the tram each year.  The tram was destroyed by fire in 1937.

This cache is a camoed lock and lock.
