Hi everyone. I was wondering if there are any wheelchair accesible caches in the Twin Cities or outstate Minnesota. I notice a lot are rated 1/1 but the only one that comes to mind is Rickrich's "Milling Around". There are plenty of paved trails in the parks but you always end up in the trees at some point. Just wondering.

GCH9Z6 Maximum Exposure II by RJ would be a good one in my opinion.
As well as GCHF98 Eh? Caco Nan... by RJ

Funny you should bring this topic up... I was thinking about this very thing today. I think if cachers knew that disabled folks were doing caches in the area, they might be apt to post its accesibility on their pages.
Good luck!

A couple of mine are WC accessable.

Tradecraft 101 is in Downtown Apple Valley. Your going to do about a mile or so but it is all urban terrain.

Out Bills Back Door and Micro Madness 2 is WC accessable with the priviso that you are willing to go out on the grass. Both should be located within arms reach assuming you can find them (hehe).

I believe that all of RJ's "Maximum Exposure" are WC accessable as well.

Silent Billy Goats Gruffy should be WC accessable depending on how the previous finder rehides the final cache. Most people in wheelchairs would need a cache located within reach from their chair.

I have always been on a personal crusade to have cache owners move their 1* terrain caches to 1.5 if they aren't truly WC accessable.

Check here for wheelchair accessible caches. The webmaster hasn't kept up on the site, but there is a list for all the states. My VR, [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=00837331-f761-44d3-b05f-ac1a3d2cf79f]
Blackbird[/url] is wheelchair accessible, but is disabled until April when the museum opens again.

One of the caches I just placed on saturday, 12 Feb 05 (cache will be named "Foot Lake Micro Mini" if your interested) is/will be accesible by wheelchair once the snow is gone.

Cache to my knowledge hasn't been approved just yet though. Cache is located in Willmar, MN. About 70 miles west of the TC.

Area by cache has a lot of water by it now. Snowmelt hasn't had a chance to soak into the ground yet.
