Geocache Description:

This is the first geocache in Seitseminen National Park.


Seitseminen National Park is situated in Kuru and Ikaalinen area and has about 42 square kilometers of preserved nature and cultural heritage artifacts. It is located in a barren watershed area. The landscape of the park is dominated by extensive peatlands and forests. The bedrock of Seitseminen is barren and covered almost everywhere with moraine. The most valuable features of the park are the old virgin forests with their giant, old pines reaching the age of 400 years.

The best place to start explore the park is the Seitseminen Visitor Center where you can get information, maps and brochures of the services offered by the park and other Metsahallitus services. You can also read more about Seitseminen National Park on its webpages.

Map

Good place to start the cache hunting adventure is Kovero Tenat farm. It gives you a picture of life in wilderness area of Seitseminen at the begining of 20th centure. The farm has been restored and furnished to its appearance in the 1930's. The cache is located nearby the old wooden mill in the eastern part of the park. You will follow by well-prepared marked trail, which goes through the heart of the park. The way to the cache is about 5.2 kilometers long. Bob the Cache Builder and me wish you good luck, nice weather and enjoy the trip.

The cache is in middle-sized regular container, which initially consists of:

  • Bob the Cache Builder travel bug
  • Yellow marker
  • Small-sized note stickers
  • Eraser
  • Terva sauna aroma oil
And of course a pencil and a cachebook to log your impression of the cache, park and trip.

After you found the cache, please put it back in exactly same way as it was hidden before. To get a better impression you can make a round trip and go back through Haukilampi. In this way the whole trip become to be 13-16 km long depending from the way you choose. Please follow the rules of the park and do not go off the trail where it is prohibited.

Kätkölle pääsee ajoneuvolla parhaiten ehkä Kuru-Parkano yhdystieltä. Kurusta päin tullessa kääntyy vasemmalle ja Parkanosta oikealle. Viitassa lukee Kivijärvi. Kivijärventieltä viitta Jauli vasemmalle. Tielle on moottoriajoneuvolla ajo kielletty -merkki Jos et halua rikkoa tätä liikennesääntöä, ota vaikka polkupyörä mukaan ja jätä auto risteykseen. Risteyksestä matkaa kätkölle n. 3km. (Huoltokeikalla käydessäni ajoin Geo-pakulla perille asti, josta kävely n. 250 m) Näyttää marjastajatkin ajavan liikennemerkin vastaisesti, joten ei ehkä paha liikennerikkomus?
