Introduction to Geocaching Hike
To celebrate National Trails Day (the first Saturday in June every year), COSTAC and COSF lead an Introduction to Geocaching hike as a way to show folks an unusual (to most people) recreational activity in our open spaces!
The hike is generally only a few miles loop hike that will pass by a dozen or so geocaches. This is generally enough to give all participants a chance to find at least one.
In 2019, the hike will be in the newly opened Sapwi Trails Community Park on June 1st. We’ll start from the parking area near the corner of Erbes Rd and Scenicpark Street, a block south of Avenida De Los Arboles, at 9:00 am. The route will cover 3 miles with 400′ of climbing and we’ll search for 9 geocaches hidden near the trail along the way. Those who are interested can join us for lunch afterwards at the nearby mall. There are also two more geocaches in the mall that we can look for that are of a very different type of the ones along the open space trails!
We will have several GPS devices for you to try as we search for the geocaches. There is no need to have your own GPS hardware.
If you would like to join us, please use our online registration form to sign up. This is important because we have a strict limit of 15 participants. Signing up online will also allow us to inform you of any changes in the event.
Please, leave your four-legged friends at home for the geocaching hike.
In 2018, we hiked the Sunset Hills Trail, returning along the streets.
There is also a slightly larger photo gallery for you to view.
