Description   EN   


First off, this area is open to public hunting, so please blaze it during those times. You are hunting this cache at your own risk.



This is a 4 stage multi-cache. It's a straight forward multi meaning you will find the cords for the next stage at each of the stages. This cache is located in a kind of hidden area called White Water Canyon. Once you get to the parking area you still have no idea what's to come. You will have about 7 tenth's of a mile and you will then see the true beauty of this area. 100 foot high bluffs, overlooks that you just don't find in Iowa. It's cool to see this area in all four seasons. This area is jointly controlled by Jones county and Dubuque county since it lands right on the border of the two countys.


This cache I'm thinking will be a difficult one. Do to the lay out of the area if you try to take the shortest way to each stage you will be playing billy goat. But it you follow the nice wide mowed trails, you will pretty much triple the distance you are hiking. How you want to get there is completely up to you. I do recommend taking some water as this area is really deceiving until you get back in the canyon areas. I suggest you take a 30 foot length of rope. It just may come in handy, but it's not required. If you have vertigo problems this cache is not for you, you will be seeing some steep bluff's. I wouldn't suggest small children do this one. But other than that enjoy your visit.


Also in the lid of the final container you will find a clue for the H.A.C. -Eagle Scout cache. This along with 10 other clues will get you the starting location. Please write your experience in the log book instead of just signing and dating it Happy caching!!!



Also I may be adjusting the ratings on this cache as I get input from finders.

Quite the hike, but a scenic park.  Need to watch your step at most parts.
