I originally intended for this cache to be the first leg of a multi but once I placed it, I felt it was worthy of its own cache page. This is another cache in my wolf Creek series that is on land owned by the Castile Youth Center. There is a nice path to follow down to the creek and then an old logging road will take you up the hill. Once you are at the creek there is a bridge you can cross and be sure to look upstream, the beavers have been very busy and have replaced their washed out dam. You can find numerous wolf (Oops!, I mean Deer) paths in the forest that will take you to this hide. This is not my typical devious hide but a more traditional placement. You do not have to tear the place apart to find this cache, it is almost out in the open with very little camouflage to hide it. The only clue I will give is this; when you are in the right area look for a small silver arrow on a tree this will point toward the cache, if you go too far there is another arrow that will point you back to the right spot. The cache is hidden somewhere between the arrows, Good Luck! While you are in the area be sure to check out the huge old cherry tree a short distance from this cache.

Back when KillerB and I made a day of caching Paleoman hides I wasn't a member here. I thought it was about time to fill in some finds I made. I loved wandering around in this patch of woods on this fine day with a good friend. You sure have made a lot of fun for cachers in your area. Thanks for all your successful efforts.

Maybe its me, but had seemed like forever since Chicky and I had taken a nice hike in the woods. Since it had been gnawing at me to get out and just hike, we took a gander at some of the local offerings and this struck an immediate chord with us. This would surely slake our desire to travel in a beautiful wooded setting.

Having been here before on other entertaining expeditions, we parked our car in the appropriate spot and began our way down the trail. About 200 feet or so from the car we realized that we had left our camera. So we had to make a momentary backtrack in order to recover it and Im not extremely thankful that we did because the rest of our journey was chalked-full of picture worthy wonders. Our first stop was Wolf Creek and the amazing beaver dam. This is an unbelievable sight and for a while we just stood in awe at the impressive structure these ingenious creatures of nature have constructed.

From there, we entered the heart of the forest and up the hill we climbed. Along the way we saw an awesome Red Pine, and a plethora of Beech and Maple. We didnt see any animals, but did find some evidence of deer prints wandering back and forth in the snow. As we approached our zero we found ourselves on the precipice of an awesome vista overlooking Wolf Creek Valley. After we found the cache, we spent a while overlooking the majestic forest and the creek running strong down below. This is a superb spot one we are extremely glad we were able to visit.

Thank you Ken for allowing us the opportunity to explore more of this gorgeous area. We never get tired of discovering the beautiful secrets this place has in store for us. Nowon to The Wolves Den!
