Begin your search from the Homestead Hollow sign southeast of the windmill and follow the trail at 107 degrees. While enjoying the wonderful wildlife, you should also observe the geography of this part of Wisconsin. In particular, you should note the ‘Erratics and Kettles.’ After observing this geography, continue on the trail due south until you find three trunks in one tree on your left (about 26 paces) just a few feet from the trail. Sight 260 degrees to the junctions of two large logs. In a log in front (trailside) of a tall stump (about 20 paces) you will find the first of the combatants. The easiest route to it might not be the most direct!
