Geocache Description:

Bring shoes you don't mind getting wet and muddy for this one! And after a rain, I don't even think I'd bother trying.


Start at the teepee, and walk down three sets of stairs (all with very inconvenient step sizes). After you walk down the second set, turn left, take a few steps, and then turn right --- this will lead you to the final set of stairs and down toward a beautiful, hidden little area which includes a small waterfall (and its own picnic table area as well).

Follow the creek about 750 feet or so until you find a long, lost picnic table. From there, there is an almost hidden bridge that will take you up to a trail closing in on the decoyed geocache.

I wouldn't advise taking that trail (which is above the creek) back to the waterfall/teepee area. We tried to, and it obviously hasn't been maintained for several years. We ended up scratching our way back down to the creek!

Please re-hide the container at least as well as you found it. We didn't want it to be obviously visible from the trail.

Bring your own pen, and probably tweezers. The container is medium, but the log receptacle is not! 

There are five caches in the Dickens Springs area. You could easily spend a good part of the day here. You'll need shoes for the mud for this one, but some good hiking/trail shoes for several of the others. If you have time at the end of the day, Gracie's Repose geocache is just down the road a bit at a pull-over rest stop.

Enjoy!
