Geocaching Trails - Dutch Country, PA - BHHS Homesale Realty

Lace up your walking shoes and grab your friends – it's time to go on a treasure hunt in Dutch County! Our real estate agents invite you to join thousands of people across the world in a modern-day global scavenger hunt known as geocaching. International Geocaching Day is on Saturday, August 15th, and now is the perfect time to discover this exciting game that's fun for all ages.

Geocaching Explained

Geocaching is unlike any scavenger hunt you've ever played before. Instead of using a typical treasure map, this game is played digitally. Although anyone can geocache, becoming an official geocacher allows you to see where geocaches are approximately located around the world. Signing up is free, and once you've become a member, you'll be able to hunt for geocaches around Dutch Country.

Every geocache that's been hidden is marked online via GPS coordinates. The individual that hid the geocache will usually include a clue with the coordinates to help specify where exactly the geocache might be. For instance, the GPS coordinates may point to a specific park and the clue might suggest checking near the playground.

Geocaches can be of any size or shape but are usually tucked away in small capsules the size of coffee cans. Each capsule may feature a logbook where you can record your name and date, as well as small tokens. If you would like to keep a token, you must replace it with another one of equal or lesser value.

To get you started, here are a few great trails and parks around Dutch Country where you can enjoy the outdoors and hunt for the coolest geocaches in the area.
