Geocaching

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt where the caches oftentimes contains toys or other trinkets.Using handheld GPS (global positioning system) devices, geocachers test terrain and intellectual prowess by searching for caches. There are over 900,000 caches waiting to be found.  At Northstar California, there are seven caches hidden - ranging  from beginner to advanced - throughout the trail  system. GPS devices can  be rented from The North Face in The Village at Northstar. 

 

How the Game Works 

Cache locations are rated as easy (green circle), intermediate (blue square), or advanced (black diamond). Dial the cache coordinates of your choice into the GPS, three to four satellites will lock onto your position, then guide you to the cache location.  Northstar California's™ caches (rustic ammo cans) contain a log book and trinkets. See who has come before you and add your name to the log book, and please follow the "take-a-trinket, leave-a-trinket" rule.
