Tam McArthur Geocache

This is a great hike to the high country with views of all of the Central Oregon mountains. Start by parking at the trailhead at Three Creeks Lake, south of Sisters. You may choose to buy a NW trail park pass. I prefer the little yellow 'NO trail fee' sticker so prevalent in the local area. Thanks BM.

If you are a crow, it is an easy 1 mile to the cache. If you are like the rest of us, be prepared for 2 miles uphill, followed by 2 miles downhill. There is more trail to be explored and a lot of scrambling, if you are so inclined. Many pictures are available. 

The cache is relatively small, so keep your trade items small. It is placed approx 20-30 feet off of the trail. Please be careful to maintain the fragile environment.
