Yes this is a Micro.....But do not let that hinder your decision to find this one. You are not looking for a needle in a haystack. Once you are at the Coords. You will find it with ease. This Cache is along the Brule Valley of Highland. A forest fire in 1936 consumed many acres in the south part of Highland and burned the Volker School as well. You may see many old burned stumps still left from the fire. It is a nice meandering walk along a nicely maintained walking only trail.
The North Country National Scenic Trail is a premier footpath that stretches for about 4,600 miles linking communities, forests, and prairies across seven northern states. Already, more than 1,800 miles have been certified off-road. Additional miles follow shared paths, and some road walks yet remain. When completed it will be the longest off-road hiking trail in the United States. South Trailhead: Gaylord Nelson Portal off Wisconsin Highway 27, about 8 miles south of Brule. Walk west along the marked spur to the trail. Alternate Access: Rush Lake Road, about 6 miles south of Brule. Off-road parking for one or two cars near the NCT sign on the south side of the road. Please hide the same way you found it...or better. Thank you. First to find prize of Signal the Frog antenna ball attached to outside of cache. The Geocache Notification Form has been submitted to the Wisconsin DNR.
