BCP468 - Beaver Creek

TiE and I thoroughly enjoyed our short exploration of the hills and rangeland immediately east of Mount Burke and west of the Bar U Ranch. The Township Road to our trailhead is in terrific shape and there was ample parking along the road side. The ford of the Pekisko Creek within a few hundred metres of our trailhead was pretty cool at 6:30 am, but easy as it was a nice wide crossing spot often used by the local cattle. We headed SE from the creek and picked up a terrific trail along a cutline and in fact continued to the cap site on a series of cutlines and livestock trails. The views from the ridge were wonderful in the morning light. Thanks OFTH for checking out and setting up this fine cap location and to TiE for the fine company on the short hike. Simply a must do cap - great trail, short distance, minimal elevation, and amazing views.

Pleasant rangeland with great mountain views

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
