100 Geocaches to Celebrate the National Park Centennial

Ready for a new adventure? On September 16th, the 4th and final series of caches for the Centennial GeoTour will be placed. This will total 100 geocaches placed around Mount Rainier and in their gateway communities such as Enumclaw. 

If you haven’t tried geocaching yet, it’s an outdoor “treasure hunt” using a GPS-enabled device such as a smartphone (with a geocaching app) or GPS receiver. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then look for the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

The 100 geocaches on the Visit Rainier Centennial GeoTour highlight the rich history, scenic wonders, quaint communities, and hidden gems of the Mount Rainier region. Fall is a beautiful time of year to be up on the mountain.
