geomarkp Posted January 4, 2010 Share Posted January 4, 2010 Hey Folks, I've been geocaching for a longtime, but this is the first time I have posted here. I've noticed near my home that the number of geocache sites has increased dramatically over the years. Of course, geocaching has become more and more popular, so it's obvious to expect to see more of them pop up over time, but when is enough, enough? I'm curious if there is general policy or protocol, when it comes to the location where geocache sites are placed or the density of sites in a general location. I live close to a park and on some of the main trails there seems to be a geocache site every 0.25 miles or so. Also, there are a large number of sites placed off trail. In my opinion, I've always thought of geocache sites as being few and far between and it was considered an adventure to look for them. Also, next to trash and crime, one of the bigger issues in the park is foot traffic and the creation of side trails where they don't belong. There are signs everywhere to remind folks to stay on the main trails and with such a high density of geocache sites, there are a number of spider trails that have popped up. Is it feasible to get some of these excessive geocache sites removed, so we retain our natural surroundings. I love to geocache with family and friends, but when is enough, enough?
