Geocaching in the Lincoln Community Forest

The Bayfield Regional Conservancy has created a geocaching series to highlight trails and properties they helped protect. The Lincoln Community Forest hosts two of these geocaches.

Geocaching
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. Geocaching is a great way to find beautiful trails and places you wouldn’t normally hear about. Below are the www.geoaching.com official cache numbers and GPS coordinates to find each cache.
What do you need?

The only necessities are a GPS device or a GPS-enabled mobile phone so that you can navigate to the cache. If you wish to log your finds online, you’ll also need a www.geoaching.com account.

Rules

  1. If you take something from the geocache (or “cache”), leave something of equal or greater value.
  2. Write about your find in the cache logbook.
  3. Log your experience at www.geoaching.com. We’d also love if you’d take a photo while caching and post it to our Facebook page. Try to be sneaky so as to not give away the location.
