Geocaching

A high-tech treasure hunt in the woods, geocaching is an outdoor activity crowd-pleaser for all ages. Geocaching is also a great way to explore new areas, check out points of interest in a park and enjoy family togetherness.

Locate our special event caches!

Thanks to the Miami Valley Geocachers, new and experienced geocachers can get their GPS on at the Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience. Visitors will be oriented to the Five Rivers MetroParks geocaching policy, learn about adventure caching and search for temporary caches hidden in Eastwood MetroPark during the festival. Stop by the Miami Valley Geocachers booth to get the coordinates for the caches available. Caches will offer fun options for a novice as well as for the seasoned geocacher. Locate our special event caches using borrowed handheld GPS (Global Positioning System) units, or download the app for your phone and have a ready-to-go geocache finder wherever you are.
