Geocaching

Geocaching

Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for all ages and can be enjoyed all year round. Combining hiking with treasure hunting, all you need is a map, computer and a GPS (global positioning) unit. The longitude and latitude coordinates for each cache are shared on the internet.  You use your GPS device to search for these caches (waterproof boxes containing a logbook, paper and assorted trinkets) hidden at various points along trails or in other locations. 

The general rule of thumb is, "If you take a trinket, leave a trinket, and write in the logbook". What a great way to enjoy the wilderness and outdoors!  Northumberland has over 100 caches for you to enjoy. Your journey can begin by checking out the caches in the Northumberland area.
