Long Description:
If you are a geocacher you can easily find this disc on your way to my cache entitled Jackson Hole Falls - GC26HGD


You may encounter horseback riders as parts of this will be a shared trail.

Because of the rock in the area, there are no guarantees on these coordinates...good luck.


This cache is located near Eddyville, IL. Drive through Eddyville, turning right toward town if you have come from Harrisburg IL area. Stay on this road which will curve to the left about 2 miles out of town. You will come to a large brick house with a white fence on your left, just past this will be Mustang Ln. Turn left, when you come to a point where two driveways are across from each other the road ahead is part private-part forest service and may not always be open to the public. (see additional info on PARK wp). Suggest pulling off to the side of the road here. Be sure not to block road or driveways of the residences in this area. Proceed down “forest service” road. Take TRAIL 497 (west). Following this trail you will come to a horse tie-up area, just past it will be a hiking trail ‘only’ off to the right. This trail will take you to the top of JACKSON HOLE Falls.
