Geocache Description:

4 mile round trip 1300 ft. elevation gain fairly steep and steady trail

This cache is named Lost Cache #1, but you are going to Edgar Rock. It is named after John Edgar, an early pioneer who guided wagon trains across the Cascades. Today the trail climbs up over the rock, a route that Edgar used when he traded with the Indians.

This rock, part of a large miocene volcano, has served as a landmark for many years. A lookout was constucted and stood on the summit from 1933 through 1951. You can still see bolts and remnants of the lookout.

This trail is in good condition and is maintained by a local Boy Scout Troop.

On your way to the rock you will pass a balanced rock holding up a Douglas fir. Or is it the other way? (You decide)

The cache is in a 50 Cal. Ammo box. Added 4-22-02: Highway 410 to Old River Road, follow towards Lost Creek Village, Park at Lost Creek Trail.
