Heritage Trail (eastern trailhead):
This is one of the locations included on the Great River Road Passage (GRRP) series of caches. Click here to see map. (Additional details about the GRRP series is given further below in the description.)
The Heritage Trail eastern trailhead, Heritage Pond, and Trail Interpretive Area are located 3 miles north of Dubuque on US 52 at Rupp Hollow Road. Heritage Pond is a 12 acre site adjacent to the eastern trailhead of Heritage Trail. The pond offers handicap accessible fishing piers, covered picnic tables, and benches to sit and enjoy the scenery and wildlife.
Open year round, sunrise to sunset.
Cache is an easy walk from the parking area. (If you go about it from the right direction, no trail fee is required.) Container is a plastic camouflaged coffee can containing high-quality starting-cache prizes. Please return the container to its hiding place as this area is getting high muggle traffic.
The Great River Road Passage series:
The GRRP is a series of caches placed along the scenic Great River Road from Dubuque to Marquette, Iowa. They have been named as “GRRP1…”, “GRRP2…”, etc. (to view all of them, click here or search by keyword “GRRP” on the www.geocaching.com/seek/ webpage). Each of the GRRP caches (except for the “GRRPbonus” cache) can be logged as a separate find and may be found in any order.
If you choose to complete the entire GRRP series, you will have the opportunity to find and log a bonus cache also placed along the Great River Road. On the inside of each cache container lid you will find a set of numbers. Write them down along with the numbers from all the other GRRP cache containers. When you get all the numbers, they can be added to give you the final coordinates for the bonus cache (see the cache named “GRRPbonus” for additional details). You must visit all of the GRRP caches to obtain the information required to complete the series and log the bonus cache. The first to complete the series and find the bonus cache will be reward with a $10.00 bill.
