Geocache Description:

The Silver Creek Pathway is located along a scenic section of the Pine River in Lake County.

The Silver Creek Pathway is our favorite place to hike both summer and winter. The trail is a 4+ mile loop that follows both sides of the Pine River with bridges at the Lincoln Bridge Canoe Landing and Silver Creek Campground. While searching for a place for the cache we saw deer, a pileated woodpecker and the resident bald eagle that flies up and down the river. After seeing him so often, I think he knows us! We were placing the cache as he went by and he did a quick flip flop and circled right over us to see what we were up to. I hollered up at him and told him about the cache and he seemed to think it was OK and continued upstream.

The best way to the ammo box cache is to walk, snowshoe or canoe/kayak. If you choose to hike the entire loop I can guarantee that you will think it is one of the better places in Michigan.

Park at the Silver Creek SF Campground on State Rd. Drive to the far end and you will see the pathway. Cross over the bridge and you will be on the right side of the river. As you approach the campground from the north on State Rd., your GPSr will tell you the cache is only .12 miles away. If you go that way, there is a steep hill and the Pine River to get across. Parking at the campground is much easier!
