Head for Mt. Rainier: The Geocache Hunt is On!


Visit Rainier released the fourth and final series of its Centennial GeoTour on September 16. The organization partnered with Mt. Rainier National Park and the Washington State Geocaching Association to create a 100-cache educational GeoTour. These geocaches have been placed around Mt. Rainier National Park and its gateway communities to celebrate the Centennial of the National Park Service. 

Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunt using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocaches hidden at that location. Each cache contains a code word that participants record in a passport downloadable on VisitRainier.com

When a passport is completed, participants mail it in for a trackable pathtag. If a player logs all 100 caches, they will receive a commemorative gold Centennial Geocoin.

Check their website and learn how you can get started in the hunt today!
