GeoTrail 2017

There are 17 Metro Parks (including Heritage Trail Park) that have a new 2017 educational Geocache located in the park. Each cache contains a log book, commemorative pins and educational information about nighttime nature. The theme of this year’s GeoTrail is “Night Shift.”

The first 100 cachers to complete the GeoTrail answer page with 15 of the 20 caches will receive a special edition Metro Parks GeoCoin. If you find all 20 GeoTrail caches, you can solve the puzzle and unlock the coordinates for the Bonus Cache.

How to participate:

  • Download and print the GeoTrail Answers page (which includes additional details of how to participate in the GeoTrail)
  • Go to to sign up for a free membership, create a cache handle and download the cache coordinates. Search for Columbus Metro Parks.
  • At the Geocaching Celebration, on October 13 at Homestead, GeoCoins will be awarded to the first 100 cache teams completing the GeoTrail.
