Experience the Bay through GeoCaching!

When was the last time you went on a treasure hunt? If you are intrigued by the idea of taking a scenic hike and following clues and coordinates to find a hidden “cache,” then Geocaching might be the next best thing. “Geocaching is a worldwide phenomenon, in which participants use a handheld GPS, or smartphone, to plot map coordinates to locate a hidden treasure or “cache.” The Find Your Chesapeake GeoTour® is the combined effort of the National Park Service, Chesapeake Conservancy, and volunteers with the Maryland Geocaching Society and the Northern Virginia Geocaching Organization.” (National Park Service).

Special geocaches have been hidden at 60 beautiful places on eight Chesapeake rivers in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Virginia.
