Geocache Description:

This one has two parts. You get a cache and you get a view. Unfortunately (for the log book) the cache comes first. It's designed as a mountain bike ride for newbies.

For this, I modified part of the "Buckhorn Wash / Wedge Overlook" ride in Greg Bromka's "The Mountain Biker's Guide to Utah". I coaxed a non-athletic, never did any mountain-biking before, sea-level person with me to plant this one. And we're still friends :) I goofed and forgot to get the mileage. (mileage for bike ride: about 17 miles)

Park at the corral
N 39 10.346 W 110 44.809
Or across the road if there are wranglers and cows all over the place.

Head towards
N 39 10.079 W 110 45.321
The Cloyds Pond road on the topo.

Then onto the mini-freeway.
Get away from any cars and off the main drag with a right at
N39 08.070 W110 46.138

Follow this until you find the detour for the

CACHE

N39 07.210 W110 47.318
See the hints below so you're sure to tread lightly! After you visit the cache, come back to the track you were on.

Continue to waypoint
N39 06.467 W110 46.700
See an error on your topo?

Head towards
N39 06.461 W110 45.735
This ride is like a figure-8. If the sign says "no vehicles" that means you too.

Stay on the main trail, avoid harming the cryptogamic soil. Head towards
N39 06.271 W110 44.542
And the main OVERLOOK (2nd part of this one)
N39 05.581 W110 45.528

Take in the view. Then put it in the big ring and fly back to your vehicle on the main road.


Original cache contents: homemade CD with awesome mountain biking graphics, a couple bumper stickers, sierra cup, detachable keychain, little photo album (with no pics), betty socks, a few miscellaneous toys.
