Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
Geocaches can be found all over the world. It is common for geocachers to hide caches in locations that are important to them, reflecting a special interest or skill of the cache owner. These locations can be quite diverse. They may be at a park, at the end of a long hike, underwater, or on the side of a city street.
Download the app, Geocaching and get started geocaching in the Royal Gorge Region today.
The Geocaching app allows you to look up caches in the Royal Gorge Region. In this beautiful part of Colorado, they seem to be everywhere!
Sizes of caches range from nano to large. The caches with S.W.A.G., or “Stuff we all get”, are typically medium to large in size and are particularly fun for kids.
If you are caching with young kids, the larger caches with S.W.A.G. are fun and generally a little easier to find. If you get really into geocaching, consider carrying a S.W.A.G. bag in your car so you’re always prepared for some spontaneous geocaching. S.W.A.G can be anything left in a small to medium sized container, such as erasers, small toys, plastic jewelry, etc.
