Geocaching in Colorado State Parks
Geocaching is a game of hiding and seeking treasure that is enjoyed by thousands of people of all ages. It's the old-fashioned scavenger hunt, gone high tech. This adventure sport is one the whole family can enjoy at many Colorado State Parks. Geocaching is a great way to explore a new area, get more exercise and learn new skills.
Using a hand-held GPS (Global Positioning System), players use their eyes and hunting skills to search for hidden treasures. The rules of geocaching are simple: take something from the cache, leave something in the cache, and record it in the log book. Caches typically are filled with low-priced trinkets—toys, books and random souvenirs.
Here are some steps to get you started on your geocaching adventure:
