2012 List of Geotrails with Rewards

119 posts in this topic

I figured with the new year here we could all use a new list of active geotrails with rewards. Please feel free to post any information you might have about any active or upcoming trails. Also if any on this list are no longer in place please let me know. For now this list will be limited to trails in North America, but I will add ones from other parts of the world as they are mentioned. Updates to this list will be made here on the original post.

Nice list. Very slight modification / technicality for the Bridges & Arches of Central Park info - the trackable coins are actually available to cache finders in exchange for donations to the Central Park Conservancy. The nontrackable gift coin is usually in the final container (we've been relying on the honor system for those, and to date geocachers have proven that faith well placed).

Alabama:

 

Two series I know of that are live right now, the Decatur Geocaching Passport (unspecified prize awarded) and the Civil War Geocaching Passport (coin awarded). Details and passports here.

 

Alabama State Parks has a series in the works that will launch in April and will have a trackable geocoin for series finishers, but it's not live yet. I posted about it here.

Excellent list. Fine work. Mostly on the East Coast, as I remember saying when someone started a thread about them once. A minor correction, and I don't know how you want to approach it, but 1/5th of Seaway Trail Geocaches are actually in NW Pa., not in New York.

List has been updated. Thank you all for your support. As to Mr. Yuck's question, I knew before typing this list that part of it was in Pennsylvania but chose to put it with New York since the majority of the trail falls in that state. If people are interested in the trail they can click on the attached link and see that a few are in Pennsylvania, but not far from New York. OK everyone please keep the active trail information coming! I would love to be able to add some more for Canada!

Not sure exactly what qualifies as a Geotrail, but in central Florida Polk County has the Trek Ten Trails program that looks a lot like the DARC trail in the Panhandle: http://www.friendsoftheparks.net/2012TrekTenTrails.html

 

I looked at the link you posted. It sounds like it may be a geotrail, but makes no mention of any prize for completing the series. The list compiled in this thread are all geotrails (group/state sponsored series of caches) which reward finders with some sort of prize for finding x number of caches. Generally these prizes are geocoins, but other prizes are also listed. So I guess what I'm asking of you is, do they give you some sort of prize for completing this program?

I posted about some thing similar in the NW forum, but the Idaho State BLM has a challenge (thought they don't call it that). It is not a trail but you get prizes from visiting different caches around that state.

This is a great list. I know we do some traveling and probably wouldn't have experienced some of these cool opportunities without this list. Thanks for posting it.

Hi all. I just wanted to let you know that in South Carolina, the York County History Series has given out all the coins so that series has ended. We will be updating all the cache pages shortly and the website.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the update. That was one of the handful of trails I was not sure about due to their website still being active.

Excellent thread. We did part of the Allegheny and Great Lake Seaway Trail and loved them. So many ammo cans found in such great spots. We will use this list when we travel in the future.

 

Please add our east central Indiana series to the list. A modest prize, but the caches are top notch and challenging. Here's a link to the bookmark of the caches. http://www.geocaching.com/bookmarks/view.aspx?guid=ff644d30-6266-44e1-a459-d2d180b5a61f

If anyone knows how I can avoid this and edit the original post I would greatly appreciate the help. Having all of the up to date information in the first post would make this a far better resource in my opinion.

no love for arizona? :surprise:

 

If you know of any such trails in Arizona I would be more than happy to add them to the list. If none exist, maybe you should take it upon yourself to talk to local organizations to create one. Here is a link to a forum post about starting such a trail. Link

New Brunswick - Fundy National Park

* Click here to get to atlanticgeocaching.com. To print your Fundy Geocaching Passport, click on "Parks Canada Downloads". You will find the passports for 2011, 2010, and 2009 here.

* Purchase your park pass.

* Find each cache in the park (please stay on the trails).

* Punch the passport with the tool provided in each cache.

* Bring your completed passport to the Visitor Centre to receive your Fundy geocoin.

* Bring along a GPS device. If you do not own one, the Fundy Guild (the park’s cooperating association) rents GPS units at their boutique located at the Visitor Centre.

 

I don't know if it is trackable or not.

 

Nova Scotia - Cape Breton Highlands National Park

# Purchase your park pass and collect your Cacheport at the Ingonish or Chéticamp Visitor Centre.

# Find each cache. Please stay on trails.

# Punch your Cacheport with the unique punch in each cache.

# Answer the five questions on your Cacheport.

# To claim your geocoin, bring your completed passport to the Chéticamp or Ingonish Visitor Centre.

 

I don't know if this one is trackable or not either.

Tri-Cities Geocoin Challenge 2012

 

In Tri-Cities Washington.

 

Is this just a one day event or will it be an ongoing challenge?

I believe this will be going until the coins are gone.

 

OK. Do you have a link for a page and or bookmark list of the caches involved?

They don't add the caches until the first day of the event, which in my link say's will be June 23. The caches remain active indefinitely, however you only get a coin until they run out (usually there are several hundred coins). You have to find 30 caches (10 each in the 3 cities). But the link to the event is all that you can get right now. I did the 2011 event which was 12 caches I believe with a Geocoin for finding at least 10 of them.

Perhaps you could maintain the list somewhere like Cacheopedia where you can continue to edit it. Another possibility would be to use a bookmark list, including one cache for each series in the bookmark list, with links to the corresponding series page in the comments for each cache.
