Lion Rock Traditional Geocache
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
6350 feet above sea level. Close to a gravel road. Do this during the warm months.
The cache was destroyed by the 2012 forest fire on Table Mountain. I reactivated the cache on June 21, 2014.
The spectacular view here will make the trip worthwhile and the cache is a plus. Off to the right you'll see the basalt lava flows forming Table Mountain and to the northwest the Mount Stuart batholith.
While you're here, you might as well log the benchmarks at the top. But the cache is located a little bit down the road along the ridge because of the large amount of visitor traffic on sunny days.
Take Reecer Creek Road north from Ellensburg. Follow the signs to Lion Rock. The road is single lane, but paved most of the way. There are turnouts in the event that traffic is encountered coming the other direction. There are some exposed places along the road due to lack of guardrails.
The cache container is a piece of 4-inch ABS pipe with caps. One of the caps is removed by grasping the square nub and turning it. Please place the container with the lid end down so moisture has less opportunity to enter. Please observe what I just said. It is important to do this because it will keep the container and its contents in good condition. Make sure the person who rehides the container has the lid properly closed. Thanks.
I know you will enjoy this one. Take the whole family.
