We finished a nice little series just across the border in Iowa called GRRP #s 1-7 plus a bonus. The first waypoint is just out of Dubuque and the last is near McGregor, IA. Lots of scenic views and pretty little towns. It'll take the better part of a day to finish, but there's more caches along the way and you can't beat the drive.

Yup – do a ”KEYWORD” search for ‘grrp’ and up pop 7 geocaches plus a bonus. I wanted to do the Mississippi last fall to see colorful caching, but now I have even more incentive! Thanks for the tip!

Hey, I am the owner of some of the caches in that series. Very Happy My brother (Timber Hawk) and I put it together. All of the caches are along or just off of the Great River Road at scenic/interesting locations from Dubuque to McGregor, IA. "GRRP" stands for "Great River Road Passage". We specifically put it together so geocachers could enjoy the scenic drive of this section of road while finding several caches along the way. Here is a quick link to all the caches in the series as Cachew mentioned:

GRRP cache series

In addition, here is a map showing the route that that caches are on:


Each cache can be found independently, or if you like, you can find the entire series. (It is about a 60 mile drive one way.) If you find GRRP1 thru GRRP7 and the 1st stage of the GRRPbonus cache, you can use information from the lids of each container to determine the location of the 2nd(final) stage of the GRRPbonus cache hidden somewhere along the way. (Explained in more detail in the GRRPbonus cache description.) If you want to complete the series and log the GRRPbonus cache, it is suggested that you find the caches in the order GRRP1...GRRPbonus(stage 1)...GRRP7 or in reverse GRRP7...GRRPbonus(stage1)...GRRP1. Then calculate the location of GRRPbonus(final) and find it on the return trip.

Hope all enjoy our caches, Very Happy

Team HoneyBunnies also mentioned that there are other caches along the way. One of my favorites (my 3rd geocache find ever) is just north of Guttenberg. Very Happy Check it out here:

Big Spring Cache

(In my opinion, the terrain and difficulty ratings may be a bit exaggerated. Of course this will also depend on the recent weather conditions and tree cover. wink )

There are also a few caches (and great views overlooking the river) at Pike's Peak State park (no admission fee) just south of McGregor. Very Happy
