Geocache Description:

A hike that takes you to one of the most scenic views in Gov. Dodge State Park. MY THANKS TO WGA GEOCACHERS WHO NAMED THIS 'CACHE OF THE MONTH' FOR JULY 2002

WGA Cache of the Month July 2002

No need to bushwack. Trails get you close. After that you'll need to find a way to get to the top of a rock formation. There are two routes that do not require rock climbing gear. The scrambled hint helps you find the spot I used, but it does not help you find the location of the cache. Some other cache hunters have discovered a different way to get on top of the outcropping. I checked it out and confirmed it. Yes, if you are able to squeeze through a tight spot, it provides another route to the top in addition to the route I suggest.

This cache hunt was originally created for the Wisconsin Geocaching Association Geo-Campout, held May 17-19, 2002.

The hike from the nearest parking spots is about 1.5 to 2 miles each way. You could mountain bike to within .5 miles of the cache. Be sure to pick up a trail map at the park entrance so you can choose one of several possible routes and parking spots. After accomplishing this hike you should also attempt the nearby bonus cache: I Dare You

There is no longer any shocking news about Henry in the cache, because that sheet was stolen along with the original cache. If you want to find out the shocking news for yourself, read about Henry Dodge in a good Wisconsin history book.
