North Alabama Geocaching

Using the ever-increasingly popular technology of GPS mapping systems, Geocaching connects individuals from around the world in a modern day treasure hunt. The sport of Geocaching, much like a traditional scavenger hunt, allows players to create caches around the world and share their location coordinates for others to find using their GPS units. Caches, including numerous ones located throughout North Alabama are listed on websites such as Caches contain at least a logbook to track the cache’s visitors, and may contain other objects such as maps, books, software, or even money. Not all caches contain treasures.

The rules of Geocaching are simple.

  •     If the cache contains a treasure, you may take it.
  •     If you take a treasure, you must replace it with something of equal or greater value.
  •     Be sure to write about it in the logbook.
  •     Return the cache to the EXACT location you found it.
