There will be 54 geocaches to find in 2017.
There will be traditional caches found outside of Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as the Earth Caches (with no containers) and Virtual caches found in the park. As there is a "Leave No Trace" policy, for the virtual caches you will be asked to take a photograph, answer questions, or solve a puzzle to prove that you found the cache and the Earth Cache will teach you some lessons about the formation of that place, why it is important scientifically, or what the site can tell you about our planet.
Each year new caches and different prizes will be added so you can come back and explore even more! You can also complete the previous year's GeoTour and receive those commemorative coins as long as they are available. Learn more about what Geocaching is by watching this introductory video:
When you're done exploring, bring your GeoAdventure Passport to either the Estes Park Visitor Center or the Grand Lake Visitor Center to get a custom wooden coin with the RMNP logo on one side and either Estes Park or Grand Lake logo on the other side.
