Geocaching & Location-Based Games

High-Tech Hide & Seek Set your coordinates to fun

Did you know that you can use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver and navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (“geocaches” or “caches”) anywhere in the world? It’s a free, family-friendly, high-tech hide and seek! This outdoor treasure-hunting is even enjoyed right here in Geauga County, where naturalists hide a new cache each season for you to find in the parks.

Scroll down for this year’s ongoing caches and rules for placing your own game piece in the parks.

What to find Ongoing Caches

Summer 2019

Holbrook Hollows
N 41° 26.782
W 081° 10.554

Follow the Old Ironsides Run Trail from the parking lot and lodge. Once you’ve passed both Timber Ridge Trail intersections and forded the stream, head north-northeast into the woods to the coordinates. This cache is hidden in the roots at the base of a tipped-over sycamore tree.

Please note: This park is open to the public while construction is still underway. Some maps of the park will include the proposed Bucktail Trail near this site. At the time this cache was placed, this trail had not yet been installed. Holbrook Hollows is still a work in progress, so your trail experience may vary as features are updated. Have fun exploring!

Spring 2019

Veterans Legacy Woods
N 41° 29.360
W 81° 10.970

Though the trail names be lacking
And there is no more good snacking
We thought you’d enjoy some fun geocaching
From the parking lot, follow the cart path
North toward the back nine
After crossing hill, dale and stream,
You’ll come to a tiny pond that’s fed by a seep
Head upstream into the thicket until you find
A tall, dead tree standing all by itself
You’ve found the cache location!

Swine Creek Reservation
N 41° 25.922
W 081° 01.487

down the Valley Trail.
Keep the stream in your sight
and you cannot fail!
