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 2021

Woodin Road Park
N 41° 36.331
W -81° 12.050

This nice little park lets you take a short break.
The number of trails is not a mistake.

Many of times you may have driven by here.
The shape of this cache is inspired by good cheer.

First property bought back in ’64 –
with dreams and hard work, there’d been plenty more.

This anniversary cache should take little time;
it might be one of the easiest to find.

Expires July 1, 2022


Spring 2021

Eldon Russell Park
N 41° 25.290
W -81° 09.819

You can access this cache off the main drive from two different trails:
the Duane Ferris Trail or the Eldon Russell Nature Trail.

Along the Duane Ferris Trail you’ll find
a stand of tall white pines
Planted in rows that
may confuse you at times.

This cache is in this place you see,
but it is not found in a pine tree.

Expires April 1, 2022


Winter 2021

The Rookery
Part A (multicache)
N 41° 30.329
W -81° 17.299

Where the past remains, but there are no trains,
No tickets needed to take a seat,
Just take a moment to rest your feet.
These wooden chairs aren’t made of spruce. You may need to look under a caboose.
There’s one more stop that can be found; somewhere off these tracks you’re bound.

Expires January 1, 2022


Fall 2020

Big Creek Park
N 41° 37.108
W -81° 12.203

Start from the Deep Woods, Meyer Center, or Ruth Kennan Trail parking lot. A triangle of trails box in this cache. Falling water and tree woods are clues to their names. The other is blazed in blue and just a mere 1,400 miles long. Don’t look down or towards the sky; this cache is only yay high. It rests within arm’s reach in the crook of a multi-trunked tree.

Expires October 1, 2021
