The geocache adventure will meet at the Cache Cave. Then everyone will caravan over to Beacon Hill to begin a hike looking for geo-caches.
This geocache activity is for all levels of geocachers, from the never-tried-it-before to the seasoned geocachers. It will be led by volunteers who are members of the Inland Empire Chapter of the WA State Geocaching Association. "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." - Geocaching.com
