Long Description:
Looking at Google Maps along longitude 88° 58.873 I found it going thru Janesville, Wisconsin. I contacted Wenryett (Wendy), a geocacher in Janesville to see if she would help me get pictures for this. She agreed. She found the correct coordinate at the Ice Age National Scenic Trail as it winds thru Janesville.

In just days, I received the pictures and more info about the area. These coordinates are on the trail between I-90 and Ruger Ave. To get there, park at the Janesville Community Day Care on Ruger, walk east till just past Greendale Dr, the walk southwest along the trail.

The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is a thousand-mile trail that travels through some of Wisconsin's most beautiful natural areas. It highlights landscape features created by the glacier that covered a portion of Wisconsin more than 12,000 years ago and is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails. The city of Janesville has more miles of Ice Age Trail located within the city limits than any other Wisconsin community. Janesville's portion of the trail makes up a large part of the Janesville Trail System, and marks the southern-most point of the Ice Age Trail. Most of the trail in Janesville is paved, perfect for biking, walking, running and rollerblading, and it connects many neighborhoods, parks and attractions. A few portions of the trail, notably the Devil's Staircase in Riverside Park and a segment that runs through the Robert O Cook Memorial Arboretum are unpaved and suitable for hiking. A map of Janesville's Trail System is available on our Resources page, and the Ice Age Trail Alliance has guidebooks and an atlas available for sale at their website store. They now have itineraries and mobile apps available here.

Janesville is an Ice Age Trail Community and an Ice Age Trail hiker destination - for more information, visit the Ice Age Trail Alliance website. The Rock County Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance offers a hiking log award program called Walk Across Rock County, which breaks down the hikes into three to five mile segments that can be done over time.
