Found it Sleepy_hollow found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Sunday, May 18, 2008Alberta, Canada

N 49° 56.948 W 114° 32.345

BCP392 - Sugarloaf Lookout Tower

Our trip to the lookout was a real adventure with the need to hike through an area of clear cutting, snow at certain points and two challenging rock bands (which can be avoided to the south) to make our way to the top.

Our trip log showed a round trip return distance of 12.8 km and an elevation gain of 2900 feet from our parking location at the fire lookout gate.

The hike was fantastic with the amazing views of the mountains of the High Rock Range along the Continental Divide to the west. Tornado Mountain to the west looks like a future hiking opportunity with a cap at the top as well.

Finding the cap at the top was challenging with all the snow cover. Thankfully revisiting a few spots resulted in us finding the cap.

Just a great hike and lookout location - TFTH and the numbers and pictures will be posted shortly.

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.
