Geocaching in Utah

multi_geocaching

Geocaching is a fun, modern twist on the old-fashioned treasure hunt.

Your treasure map is a GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) unit, and will tell you the coordinates of “buried treasure” (cache) in the area. Inside each “treasure box” you will find a logbook and a selection of free small gifts. Sign the book and claim your prize!

If you find a “travel bug” (a marked coin that visitors are asked to move from park to park), move it to another park and don’t forget to take a picture of you moving it!

Caches can be found at many of the Utah State Parks, and all participating parks offer free rentals of Magellan GPS units. You can also download a GPS app on your smartphone.

For a list of participating state parks and more information about geocache“treasure box” coordinates and the program, visit the Utah State Parks website.

  3. You don’t have to be larger than life you just have to be big enough to live it. I didn’t dip my foot in the salty froth that day because there were 2-3 meter swells slamming into the “Rock” and I didn’t feel like taking an icy dip. It was after all Ice Burg season…
