Geocache Description:

Enjoy the view from John Burroughs' "summerhouse" at the top of the meadow at Woodchuck Lodge. Once you've taken in the views and discovered John's cache, take a walk down the Trout Lily Trail to the former home of John Burroughs. From 1910 to 1921, Woodchuck Lodge was the summer home of John Burroughs, America’s most prominent and adored naturalist-essayist. The Lodge was built in the early 1860s by Burroughs’ older brother Curtis on Burroughs homestead land where the naturalist was born and raised. John Burroughs wrote several essays during summer sojourns at Woodchuck Lodge in the last years of his life, and there he also entertained luminaries such as Harvey Firestone, Thomas Edison, and Henry Ford.
