This sticky forum topic is provided for WGA members to share their recommendations regarding “must find” geocaches in this region.

Please provide a link to the cache page for any geocache that you recommend. Remember that you can simply enter the waypoint (GC) code for the geocache and the forum software will automatically take care of generating the link (like this: GC3B1). Alternatively, you can post a link to a geocaching.com bookmark list containing your recommendations.

If there is a need to edit or delete your recommendations at a future date, just post a note in this topic and one of our forum admins will take care of making the change.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

GC11RNV is one of the best caches I've every done.
If you kayak/canoe to the second part, take a few minutes to see what the hikers experienced. The hike at the second part is mind-blowing.
There is also a Terracache nearby, if you cache on that site.

This looks just awesome. Is the water high enough for a canoe? Otherwise, I have a non-caching kayaking friend who'd be game to do it!

I'm a land lover, so I'm just guessing. I wouldn't canoe it unless there has been alot of rain, or during springs meltdown. It doesn't look very deep at points 1 or the caches final areas.
I'll be glad to be your tourguide if you want to take a stroll... Very Happy

I'll put in a recommendation for a multi-stage cache near Platteville, called "What's a Benchmark?" (GC2VRV2) by AltDawg. Takes some work to get through this 3-stage multi, but it's definitely worth the time.

I usually don't chase multi's. I'm not even certain why I chose this one to try to find, but I'm glad we did it.
