It will vary from state to state. In Connecticut, there is liability protection at the state level if a private landowner allows public use (such as a hiking trail) on his/her land, but does not charge a fee. The Connecticut Forest and Park Association works with landowners on trails and offers this information:

If there is a similar organization in your state, you can try checking there.

Each person, when he or she accesses the data on the Geocaching.com website, agrees to these conditions.

"Geocaching.com Disclaimer

Cache seekers assume all risks involved in seeking a cache.

 

...

Geocaching, hiking, backpacking and other outdoor activities involve risk to both persons and property. There are many variables including, but not limited to, weather, fitness level, terrain features and outdoor experience, that must be considered prior to seeking or placing a Cache. Be prepared for your journey and be sure to check the current weather and conditions before heading outdoors. Always exercise common sense and caution."

RI Law is similar.
