Geocache Description:

The cache is located just a quarter of a mile off of the original route of the Yellowstone Trail, in the Homestead Hallow County Park. From Menomonee Falls, the trail went north where 175 is now, and then turned due north at Hilltop Drive, going straight to where Goldenale road is now, though the road is now bisected into 2 different roads (Hilltop & Goldendale) by the freeway.

This is a mystery cache. The coordinates listed above take you to a good place to park, but not the cache. To find the cache, visit (visit link) and solve for the following:

The cache is at:

A = The fourth digit of the year Wisconsin starting numbering roads.
B = The fourth digit of the year that the Yellowstone Trail Association was formed
C = The number of states the Yellowstone Trail goes thru, minus 7
D = The number of Wisconsin counties that the Yellowstone Trail goes thru, minus 12
E = The dollar amount of individual dues in the Yellowstone Trail Association in 1920
F = The number of transcontinental road associations in 1913

All of the clues above can be solved by looking at the Yellowstone Trail website, at (visit link)
