The geospouse and I are planning to do a 2 or so hour hike sometime this weekend depending which day has the nicest weather with all the wind and rain. Can anyone recommend a trail that has a handful of caches? We've done a handful of the Whimsical Tails series. Ideally in southern Dane, any of Rock, western Jefferson, or north/west Walworth. Thanks!

The Glacial Drumlin trail near Madison has quite a few caches along it, many of them part of the America the Beautiful series.

Tuskeegee Airmen National Historic Site-ATB is at one end of the trail and Hot Springs National Park-America the Beautiful is at the other.

I believe there are 62 caches total in the series, plus others not part of the series along the trail as well.

There are quite a few along the Sugar River State Trail north of Brodhead. I don't know if that helps. Also just across the border into Illinois, starting in Rockton, there is a nice trail that was former RR bed. It has several caches there as well.

Thanks! I think we're going to look at the ATB series but it is good to know about Rockton; we spend 3 weekend days/month in Rockford but never get to cache much.

I e-mailed the CO but can anyone tell me if the ATB series is along a trail that has multiple parking locals (like the Ice Age Trail)? We won't have time to do the entire thing so I'm trying to figure out a decent start and stop point.

I assume you've got all of the ones in the Robert O Cook arboretum in Janesville? Tons of hiking trails with lots of caches mixed in and a new section of the Ice Age Trail goes through it. There's also a challenge in the park, if you collect enough caches you can go for the mystery cache! Lots of variety too!

Actually, we haven't. We have three dogs we almost always take with us and someone had told us awhile back they weren't allowed. Now that I'm looking online, I can't find any information on an official site.
