Geocache Description:

Warren County's First Geocache! Located in the Woodland Mounds Preserve, SE of Indianola. Visit the Warren County Conservation Board for details on directions and a map of the area.

The home county of cacheKidds #2 was without a cache so we decided to place one while on vacation. This is an interesting, rarely visited park in Warren County. Check out the web site above to find out the history of the Indians who dwelled here long before any of us did! You can reach the parking lot by following the signs from Hwy 92 E of Indianola, near Ackworth. Once parked, follow the trail into the trees. The hike is not too difficult in terms of terrain but the round trip is about 2 - 3 miles. You will come to a couple of forks in the trail but don't worry, as long as you keep moving north, you will be OK. However, left is much shorter than right. Time of year will also determine difficulty level in reaching the cache due to vegetation changes. Please remember to take a photo of yourself and log in. Also let us know if the camera is full (the camera numbers go backwards so picture #27 is the first and #1 is the last). Bring bug spray and look out for poison ivy, too. Have fun! ;) We encourage you to log this find at
