How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
A rugged and isolated wilderness in southwestern Missouri. The shallow soils and rock outcroppings form expansive open glades more reminiscent of alpine country than the usual Ozark forests.
The wilderness can be reached by Highway 125 from the east, Blair Ridge Road from the south and Broken Back Bridge Road from the west. I parked at the forest tower campground at N36 41.078 W92 53.022. From the top of the forest tower you can see the lights of Branson twinkling like diamonds in the distance. You can also see the Upper Pilot Knob where the cache is hidden 3.5 miles away. The last half-mile is off trail and those attempting this cache should have map and compass reading skills. Bring plenty of water there is none on the trail. Maps are provided at the trailheads, I used the trail from the north side of the tower. If you use the Long Creek Branch trail be prepared for a 600-foot elevation differential to the cache. Good luck and good hunting.
