Geocache Description:

Another lonely cache for you hikers.

Legend has it Silas Doty was a member of the Jesse James gang and when he was hiding from the law this cave in Hillsdale County is where he took refuge. Since I visited this cave last fall someone has taken it upon themselves to hack the trees and blaze a trail in orange to the cave. This is unfortunate and thus some Cache in Trash out will be needed. The trail head is on Skuse road and is part of the North Country Trail system. Park .3 miles west of the trail head on the South side of Skuse Rd. Cache is .34 miles from trail head but steep initial ascent and steep valley walls at cave location yields level of difficulty. Cache is NOT at cave or on flood plain. There is a camera in cache to photograph yourself at this lovely spot, email me when it is full and I will have it developed and post pictures. There is a letterbox stamp in cache, bring your own stamp pad. Small trade items appropriate for kids.
