Geocaching Trails
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. Learn more here:  www.geocaching.com

Clearfield County GeoTrail - Each year the Clearfield County Recreation and Tourism Authority picks a new trail theme and creates about 30 caches to take people to locations in that category category. County cemetaries, parks, and streams are included in the themes!

Legacy of Conservation GeoTrail - The idea behind this geotrail is to put geocachers on some of the best sites the Pennsylvania Wilds has to offer on state lands and significant conservation locations. Created by the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, each geocache has a collectable “Legacy of Conservation” card, featuring one of Pennsylvania’s notable environmental heroes/heroines.
