Geocache Description:

This cache is located in the John A. Kleber Wildlife Management Area in Owen/Franklin counties. You can park at 38° 20.533 N 84° 45.433 W, which is best accessed by coming from KY 368 (turn off at Oakland Branch Rd. near the church).

"Steep hillsides, narrow ridge tops and floodplains with a combination of woods, brush and grasslands. Fishing in small pond. Site of annual Christmas Bird Count by Frankfort Bird Club and Frankfort Audubon Society. (502) 535-6335. Owned by Ky. Dept. Fish and Wildlife Resources."

The cache is located approximately 0.6 mi. from the parking area, but it's a long and steady incline most of the way there. The cache itself is located about 20' from the trail, so please do not try the most direct approach, since that may require crossing over into the neighboring private property. You are looking for a 50 cal ammo container.

The original cache contents are: two Far Side coffee mugs, two carribiners, two bars of soap, a hand-woven South American fiber wash cloth, a package of tissues, a container of yellow playdough, a container of Body Shop hemp lip balm, a stone pendant, a pair of ear rings, a single hoop ear ring, a US/Germany flag pin, a rainbow napkin ring, a Chinese finger puzzle, two Adult Swim (Cartoon Network) stickers, two ready-made micro cache containers, and the WCWT:C travel bug. There's still room for more stuff, too.

The entire trail to the cache is open for horseback riders, but this WMA is not as frequented as others, so no need to worry about stepping in horse droppings. It's very peaceful out there - lots of wildlife to see if you are attentive.

Please read the Guidelines to Wildlife Management Areas in Kentucky before attempting this cache. Also note that this WMA is closed during deer quota hunts in September.

There is a good bit of cover this time of year that may have prevented me from getting an accurate reading for the cache location. Please let me know if you have better coordinates and I will make adjustments accordingly.

5/27/04: I have changed the coordinates to the ones suggested by pwyll. I knew mine were likely to be off, so I appreciate the information.

8/7/04: I went with virgo91967 to watch him hunt for this today, and to check the coordinates with a different GPSr. I used Paddy Yenar's Magellan SporTrak Pro, and averaged that with the coordinates from pwyll. I think they're more accurate now.
