Another Few Miles Geocaching on the Ahnapee State Trail

The last three Sunday’s we have made our way to a different part of the Ahnapee State Trail to geocache. Today we accomplished 3.27 miles with partly sunny skies.


The terrain on this trail is crushed rock and flat all the way. It always amazes me how peaceful I feel when walking a trail away from the city.


With all the leaves fallen from most of the trees now, it is quite easy to find things that we would normally not notice.


Along the way we heard many, many hunters shooting in the distance, saw a gentlemen fishing the river from a kayak (brrrrr, way to cold for me), two hunters with their dog, and one big buck, which obviously I did not have my camera out at the time or I would have had a picture for you all to see.


It was a productive day with us finding eleven goecaches and getting in a nice walk together.


After this we came home and ultimately finished our first puzzle.


This was suppose to last till Spring or at least most of Winter. I guess we both got a little addicted to the hobby and had it together in about 4 days. No worries though, I bought another one yesterday.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

  1. I think I stole somebody’s geocache recently. It was a rainy day so I was hiking in the woods not too far from the city. There’s a point near the waterfall where you can step off the trail and scramble your way to a better and closer view. On the way back, I noticed something in the middle of an old, rotting and hollowed out log. I went to see what it was and found a cooking pot. My assumption was that people had camped here – I could see ash from a fire – and left it behind. So I carried it back to the car, took it home, and threw it away, feeling like I’d done a good deed. But then I realized that it wasn’t strewn about like you’d expect from lazy campers, it was hidden in a way that made it not obvious, but easy to spot if you’re paying attention.

    Do geocachers hate hikers who clean up what they find? Is this a common problem?

    • First of all, you did what we would have done if we found this while out hiking also.
      Geocaches are all labeled as a geocache and should be monitored on a regular basis by the person who placed the cache. We are also hikers and most of the time you will not stumble upon a cache while hiking unless you are looking for this type of thing.
      Thanks you for your questions. Happy Hiking.
