Geocache Description:

Just off the Mize Loop trail near Pia-Margrethe’s Overlook is a view worthy of an eagle, north across Cook Inlet and beyond to Denali…

The cache is half a mile from the Kincaid Park Chalet (as the eagle flies) or .7 miles if you know the most direct route. It’s less than ten yards off the Mize Loop trail, nestled in the base of a tree well past its prime. Replace the cache with care, as this is a high traffic area within Kincaid Park.

The cache is hidden on the south side of the trail. In the summer of 2004 a pair of eagles were successfully raised to maturity in a nesting tree just a hundred yards north of this cache. Unfortunately that nest was destroyed during a windstorm in the winter of 2004-5. The eagles have relocated to another location within Kincaid Park. Remember, it is a violation of federal law to disturb nesting eagles, or to keep eagle feathers… take this warning seriously! From the bench at Pia-Margrethe’s Overlook, Denali is visible on clear days to the north, as are aircraft landing from the west at the International Airport.
