Geocaching

Geocaching

Looking for a fun, family-friendly way to exercise both your mind and body? Try geocaching ("jee-oh-cash-ing"), the fast-growing sport that's akin to a modern-day treasure hunt.

Instead of a worn map marked with an X, you use a GPS receiver, a set of coordinates and clues that will lead you to a cache of goodies hidden at that location. Massanutten is home to many geocaches, so what are you waiting for?

Learn more about geocaching and find a cache near you by visiting www.geocaching.com.
