How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

To reach this cache, start from the parking area for the Carter Falls Trailhead, just down the road from the the Cougar Rock Campground and Picnic area. From there, you will have to brave the bridge over the glacial-fed, silt-laden Nisqually River. This bridge may change over time, but most recently was a simple log foot bridge.

The hike up to the falls is 1.1 miles each way, through very nice forest (although the trail is accompanied by a pipeline for a short segment). While the first part of the trail is reasonably level, you'll be in for a bit of a climb for the last half. We think the falls are worth it, though.

To receive credit for this cache, look around for the Carter Falls sign when you get there. Take note of the elevation on the sign, and send us an e-mail with that number. Do not include the answer in your log. We encourage you to post pictures of your visit, just please leave the sign out of them. Any logs that include the information required for logging this cache will be deleted.

If you have the time, be sure to hike just a little further up the trail to Madcap Falls (thanks to Chod for the picture!).

Enjoy your visit!
