How Geocaching Works

This cache is one of two that is located in the Sheridan Wildlife Area that is overseen by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. We received permission for this hide from the Webster branch office that oversees this area.
The cache was originally started as a theme cache with only boy scout patches. Any patch is more than welcome as a trade item. If you do not have a patch, feel free to trade any item.
Another Cache hidden by the Hoxie Cub Scouts. This area is referred to as Old Sheridan Lake. This park was built by the WPA after WWI by soldiers that came back from the war that did not have any jobs. Originally a large lake was here but it silted in so dynamite was used to blow the dam! In another area you can see what is left of the old dam. Needless to say, there is hardly any water at all in this area. The area allows public hunting so you need to be very careful hunting in the fall as many hunt deer and turkey in the area.
To get to the cache, you can park at the drive to the gate but do not drive past it. You can easily walk around the gate. There is a very easy flat hike on a closed road until you get right to the cache. Very close to the cache is a concrete picnic table. Yes this is over 60 years old and why is there a picnic table here? You should be able to see the picnic table from the cache site. If not, the table is located very close at N39 08.170 W100 11.847. Make sure and watch out for the poison ivy and ticks as they were pretty thick when we hid the cache.
