GeoTrail 2016

768px_GeoTrail_PRO_walking-on-geocaching-program_M-FetherolfThe 2016 GeoTrail highlights the trees and forests of Metro Parks. We invite you to participate in this year’s Geocache hunt that includes a variety of cache types and difficulty levels. There are 15 Metro Parks (including Greenways) that have a new 2016 educational Geocache located in the park. Most caches contain a log book, commemorative pins and an educational blurb. This year’s theme is “May the Forest be with You”.

The first 100 teams to find any 15 GeoTrail caches are eligible to 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 page, and find the cache codes. (includes additional details of how to participate in the GeoTrail)

• Go to geocaching.com to sign up for a free membership, create a cache handle and download the cache coordinates.

• At the Geocaching Celebration, 10am on Sept 10 at Blendon Woods’ Hickory Grove Reservable Shelter, geocoins will be awarded to the first 100 cache teams completing the GeoTrail. Carry on the hunt for the Bonus Cache even after the Geocaching Celebration. GeoTrail ends October 31.
