Howell Woods provides a number of outdoor recreation outlets for use by the
general public - hiking, horseback, and bike trails; fishing and camping. Some require you to pay a small user’s fee which is used to maintain and improve the facility.
Currently there are three geocaches located on Howell Woods for the modern day treasure hunter. All three caches were placed by the Howell Woods staff to highlight interesting features of the property. Our current caches include; Bird’s Buffet-GC11A54, Longleaf Creek-GC119BJ and Ecology College-GC1CEVK. Bird’s Buffet and Longleaf Creek are family/kid friendly and both can be found under an hour. Ecology College is a long distance, but very rewarding educational adventure. There are plans to add additional geocaches in the future. Visit www.geocaching.com to get started.
Howell Woods is actively managed for the
benefit of wildlife, educational opportunities, and low impact outdoor
