Geocaching

  • 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. It's a fun way to explore Michigan's great outdoors, while joining 3 million other geocachers looking for millions of caches all over the world.
