Geocache Description:


The cache is placed in the Mines of Spain Recreation Area along the Eagle Scout Trail.  The nearest parking is at the Cattesse Hallow Access area (see parking coordinates).  It is located off Olde Massey Rd.  From there follow the Cattesse Trail to the Eagle Scout Trail.  Most of this area is open to hunting so wear the appropriate clothing during hunting season. You do not need to cross the fence.

The cache is placed with the permission of the Iowa DNR.  The Mines of Spain Recreation Area is open year around from 4 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

HIKING TRAILS:  Hiking and cross-country ski trails are available at the Mines of Spain Recreation Area. Check with the park staff for cross-country ski routes, from the interpretive center to the south end of the recreation area. Six miles of trails are groomed for cross-country skiing when snow permits and there are 21 miles of maintained hiking trails. There are five individual nature walks within the park, including those at the E.B. Lyons Interpretive Center and another at the Horseshoe Bluff Site. Other trails provide a wide range of opportunities for visitors to view Mines of Spain on old winding logging roads, to view limestone bluffs, scenic overlooks, and to enjoy a hike through forests and prairie. Some of the trails are steep and challenging. Dogs on 6-foot leashes are allowed. No bikes allowed.
