Ranger Rick’s Geocache Trails contain either 3, 5, or 8 geocaches to be hidden around your property, for geocachers to find.
Each geocache on your trail will have it’s own web page on geocaching.com.
Before setting out for their adventure, kids and parents will download your trail's coordinates to a GPS unit or smartphone from geocaching.com. There they will also download a Ranger Rick’s passport. When geocachers find one of your caches, they will sign Ranger Rick’s log book, found inside. Each geocache also features a Ranger Rick mystery. Cachers are asked to solve the mystery by stamping their passport. Additional “More to Explore” activities are included in each cache, as well as opportunities for trading.
Geocachers can fill their passports by finding all of the geocaches along your trail.
Ranger Rick’s Geocache Trails are a great new way to inspire curiosity and learning about the natural world, while providing the satisfaction of seeking and finding hidden “treasure.” The program is designed to be fun for first-time geocachers or experienced geocachers.
Geocache trails allow a facility to provide a well-rounded experience for the geocacher. For more information on the benefits of becoming a trail host, check out these reasons to host a Ranger Rick’s Geocache Trail.
Trading is a popular part of geocaching. The rule is, if you take something out of the geocache, you must leave something of equal or greater value behind.
Ranger Rick’s Geocache Trails come with Ranger Rick items to help you begin the trading process. The geocaches on your trail will quickly fill up with other traded items, but feel free to include your own stuff, such as promotional items, coupons, or educational materials.
