Event Link

Event is set for Sunday February 23rd at the David R. Obey Ice Age Interpretive Center. Address is 13394 County Highway M, New Auburn WI 54757

Start showing up around 8:30 and by 9:30 we'll all decide which of the many loops and trails we want to traverse to grab some of the many caches in the area or break up and take your own route. You can make it as easy or as challenging as you want. More Information Below.

This is my first event so I am just hoping to have a great geocaching get-together that is simple and fun.

The plan is to meet up, do some snowshoeing, bring your own lunch, and have some fun.

The Ice Age Center is a very nice facility to visit. You can borrow snowshoes from the center and I'm sure they would appreciate a donation for them.

More Information about the area:

Things to do in the interpretive center, hold a snake, pet a turtle, dig for fossils, borrow snowshoes, watch a nature video, do a scavenger hunt, feed the fish a bug, discover how ice formed the Chippewa Moraine, try the voyageurs' paddle race or play voyageurs' tug-of-war

The Chippewa Moraine segment of the Ice Age National Scientific Reserve includes 23 miles of well-marked trails. The trails are for foot travel only, and motorized vehicles, horses, or mountain bikes are not allowed in the Chippewa Moraine.

The most popular trails at Chippewa Moraine are the three, self-guided trails that begin at the interpretive center. Hike or snowshoe the trails to see glacial kettle lakes, hummocks, ice-walled lake plains and wildlife.

Mammoth Nature trail (0.75-mile loop)
Dry Lake trail (1.8-mile loop)
Circle trail (4.5-mile loop)

And of course the Ice Age Trail runs 30 feet from the parking lot.

Find # 1,000!!!!! for Team Northwoods. 22 geocachers and snowshoers showed up for this fun and a bit chilly, when you couldn't hide from the wind, event. What a great turnout for my first event. Thanks to all that showed up making this a very enjoyable event and to help break through the cabin fever. Hope to see you all and more next year. Easily an annual event. Many loops and caches to explore keeping it fresh each year. The loop we took this year was 2.4 miles and more good food than you can eat.

Everyone looks like they're having a great time!

Not all who wander are lost, some are geocaching.
