Benchmark at Mission Point

We found this unregistered benchmark on Mackinac Island during our annual weekend at this beautiful island in Michigan. All our research to locate a listing for the benchmark returned no results and therefore, we decided to list it on Opencaching.us.

It is located atop Robinson's Folly, above the Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island, MI. There is no admission to access this part of the island. However, one must ride one of two ferry boats from to mainland to the island. There is a fee for riding the ferry boats. There are two ferry boat companies. To determine pricing, Google "Ferry & Mackinac Island."

Below are two views: One from the vista looking down on the island and one from the island looking up at the vista.

The only requirement for logging this cache is to upload a photo of yourself and your GPS device standing or sitting next to the benchmark along with your log entry.

A map of the island including hiking trails can be downloaded at the following link: http://www.uptrails.org/michigan-trail-maps/mackinacislandlocatormap.pdf

1 26 July 2016 Highcountryhikers Found it

First spotted this elevation marker during our honeymoon on Mackinac Island on 7/24/1965, then again while geocaching on 7/20/2005 (...and every year since), but didn't know how to log it as we were still fairly new to geocaching.

Finally decided it was time to log the Benchmark as found on 7/26/2016 when we returned for our 51st. Anniversary. Our thanks to Cyclops for discovering this previously "unrecorded" marker so that we could log it.

1 07 October 2011 Cyclops Found it

I was on the island for some cache maintenance and to enjoy a fine fall weekend.  I was here a month or so ago but forgot to bring the logging requirements.  TFTC
