Geocache Description:

Short 0.1 mile hike on an overgrown man-made trail. Elevation change is 180 feet.

The access is a short hike suitable for children along a packed trail with great scenic views of Bull Mountain and Buttermilk Jim Gulch. Entire trail is on BLM land.

The cache is a green ammo box. Original contents are: Logbook with Penci/sharpener, Montana postcard, Mini calendar, Calculator, Crow Flitter Critter, Yo-Yo, Cowboy Statue, Barrettes, Blue Ice, & Table Tennis Sport Balls

6/13/04 -- We've found that a few have felt that the difficulty level was higher than indicated. After some thought we have come to the conclusion that they are approaching it from the wrong direction. We need to be clearer. Start on the trail, just up the dirt-track road from the parking location (see hint). Once on the trail, remain with it for three switchbacks. After the third switchback follow your GPS directly to the cache. Look for the rock formations. Do not leave the trail early or you will wind up with a difficulty level of 4. You don't need to rock-climb here.
