Geocache Description:

The cache is not at these coordinates.

But this is where you should start your journey.

This is the next of Run/Hike/Bike with Me caches that I have started since moving to MN. Since most of my cache finds are done while exercising, I thought I would offer this delight to others. These caches will not necessarily be hard to find, but you will have to put some miles on the legs for them. So lace em up, grab some water, and come join the fun

This hike will be a 4.5ish-mile (total) hike down the Hogback Ridge and Bass Ponds Interpretive Trails of the Long Meadow Lake Unit. While bikes are allowed on Hogback, they are not allowed in the Bass Ponds area, sorry. The final cache is in a winter friendly location just up the road from where you parked. While you are here, you can also visit the new/old Cedar Bridge, the State Trail on the opposite side of bridge, and the Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center is not far away either.

As for the waypoints, here we go…

Water – There is a brown sign in the vicinity. How many letters are in the first word (starts with a "D")? Consider this A.

Path Sign – There is a brown directional sign here. The last word on the sign (starts with M) has how many letters? Add 2 to that number and consider this B.

Trail Number – There is an interpretive number marker here. Consider that C.

Fishing – There is a nice little fishing pier here. I have tried my luck a few times but have not nabbed the biggest fish illustrated here. What is that fish? 1 – Bluegill Sunfish; 2 – Channel Catfish; 3 – Northern Pike; 4 – Largemouth Bass.  Consider that D.

Then consider:

N44 50.0AD W093 14.8BC


Hope you had a great hike!
