Hello From Nevada!

Date Placed: June 16, 2010
Letterbox: Traditional
Carver: salad tongs
Logbook:  GreenJello
Planter: GreenJello
Location: Battle Creek Canyon, Pleasant Grove, Utah, Utah
Distance: About a half mile, round trip
Status: Active

The first battle between the Mormon pioneer settlers in Utah and the Ute Native Americans occurred at Battle Creek, Utah, which is now called Pleasant Grove. (History of Battle Creek)

Directions: From I-15, take exit 275 (Pleasant Grove). Go east off the exit. At the intersection with State Street, continue straight through the light onto Center Street. Turn right onto 100 East and then left onto 200 South. Continue to follow 200 South eastward until you dead end in a parking area next to Kiwanis Park. Leave your car there, and find the trailhead off to your right from the Kiwanis Park sign. A brown trail marker will let you know that this is the Battle Creek Trail.

When you reach the mini-cliff face on the trail to your right, go to the west end of it. In the crook of the many-trunked tree, under rocks and leaves, something is quietly hiding. Please rehide VERY well, as this is a busy trail!

Notes: Should you choose to continue up the trail, you will soon see the lovely Battle Creek Falls. It's not that much further... you're about halfway there at this point. :)
