There are several places to park depending on time of year and whether you have a State Park sticker. If you don't have a sticker and don't want to purchase one, park along the road at: N 44° 01.784', W 086° 30.316'. This will add about 0.3 of a mile to your outing. During the summer months, you can take the entry road and park at: N 44° 02.001', W 086° 30.042' but you will need a State Park sticker. The cache is less than 0.2 of a mile from here.
The Ludington State Park Administrator has graciously allowed us to place the cache in a beautiful area.
Please be careful to obey the following instructions to protect the fragile ecology and prevent erosion.
This cache is in a 50-caliber ammo can. Stay on trail until you reach the dune access area at: N 44° 02.000', W 086° 29.939'. From this point, proceed to the final cache coordinates. NOTE: This is a popular area so please be careful to keep your caching activities hidden from view.
