Geocaching on the Loop

Geocaching is kinda like a family-friendly treasure hunt! There are a variety of types of Geocaches from large containers like ammo cans or plastic containers (snap-lock-type) to small magnets stuck to the back of a road sign. Hunting for geocaches can take you off the main trail into country you would never have explored. 

Geocaches are hidden in almost every country on Earth. There are over 3 million geocaches, and there is even a geocache on the International Space Station! If anyone gets to sign that log, please let us know!!

Get started at https://www.geocaching.com/play and create an account so you can find geocaches near you.

Download and open the Geocaching® app to see geocaches near you. Then, select a geocache to find!

2. Navigate to the geocache: Once you select a cache, go outside, and use the app to navigate to it. And don’t forget to bring a pen so you can sign the logbook inside the geocache.

3. Look for the geocache: Once you navigate to the location, look at the recent activity and the hint for clues. Geocaches come in all shapes and sizes!

4. Find and log the geocache: Sign your username in the geocache’s logbook and place the geocache back where you found it. Log your find in the app or on https://www.geocaching.com/play to see your find count increase!
