Well it is time to create a new thread for a new year. Since so many people seemed to enjoy my geotrail thread last year I have decided to start a new one for this year. Please feel free to post any new trails that you know of so that I can add them to the ever growing list. Also if any of these trails have ended or been modified please let me know, as I do not have the time, due to a family emergency, to check out each of these trails. New additions to this list will now be marked <--New This tag will remain until the next new post, heres hoping I have to add this tag often! With all that being said, Enjoy!

I'll have to look up a few here in Washington. There's the Three Dam Challenge that you get a patch when you finish it (get your passport stamped at all three dams). Also, there's a small town on the WA/OR border that has it's own caches out and when you find them all and fill out your "passport", you get a prize.

Just a clarification for the new one in New Brunswick (March of the 104th), there is 23 caches (although they state 30), but the award is for finding any 15 of them. Also, now I am looking at it a little closer, it seems that it is called either the "104th Regiment Geotrail" or "March of New Brunswick 104th" (rather than all caps). You could also add in this link that has some additional information. http://www.frederictonregionmuseum.com/content/253350

Dumb question, but are Geotrails limited to North America? Or can they be anywhere(worth a trail, of course!)?

 

I'm wondering about that too. Is there a definition of a geotrail or can it be just any series of caches?

 

Is someone willing to add examples for a european list?

Geotrails are a series of caches placed by an individual or organization where those who find all the caches in the series receive a prize, most often an unactivated geocoin with the name of the trail. If you still have questions about what a geotrail is I would recommend you click on the link for the Alleghney one in PA, as it has a nice explanation.

My list currently only list known trails in the US and Canada because that is all that has been brought to my attention. If you know of any in other countries PLEASE let me know and I will add them to the ever growing list.

 

Hope that answered all of your questions.

For those of you who have placed any of these trails, how'd you got about getting financial backing for the coins? Me and my geo-buddy released a power trail of challenges a couple months ago, and by early spring it'll be 110 challenges along 1 13 mile stretch of a bike trail. I'd love to reward the cachers that come!

From what I have seen with friends who have created some of these is that your best best would be to contact the park system that owns the trail and try to set something up with them.

Well it is time to create a new thread for a new year. Since so many people seemed to enjoy my geotrail thread last year I have decided to start a new one for this year. Please feel free to post any new trails that you know of so that I can add them to the ever growing list. Also if any of these trails have ended or been modified please let me know, as I do not have the time, due to a family emergency, to check out each of these trails. New additions to this list will now be marked <--New This tag will remain until the next new post, heres hoping I have to add this tag often! With all that being said, Enjoy!

Both of the ones in Minnesota are currently not active, and neither link works for their web pages.

 

Thanks for the heads up Jeffrae! I have removed them from the listing.

 

Additionally, to the other recent post, please use this topic only for the listing of active geotrails. If you wish to discuss setting one up please start a new topic. If we keep getting off topic the list will be harder for those who want to view it to find!

Thanks!

So in theory I could make one in NZ?

Link to comment

You could make one. Do you really want to? Think about it...Placing 100 (Or more. There is one with over 1000) caches, putting them all up on the website one by one, dealing with any issues the reviewer comes up with. Let's say a group of 3 people do the trail together-that's 300 emails(In the space of an hour or 2) lets say a group of 10 do it, that's 1,000 emails. You won't be using ammo cans or LnL's, probably use some form of micro. That means more maintenance. If you decide to make a coin for people it, look at spending $1000-$2000 CDN/US

There are ways to do it easier, but not by yourself. It's a lot of work.

You could make one. Do you really want to? Think about it...Placing 100 (Or more. There is one with over 1000) caches, putting them all up on the website one by one, dealing with any issues the reviewer comes up with. Let's say a group of 3 people do the trail together-that's 300 emails(In the space of an hour or 2) lets say a group of 10 do it, that's 1,000 emails. You won't be using ammo cans or LnL's, probably use some form of micro. That means more maintenance. If you decide to make a coin for people it, look at spending $1000-$2000 CDN/US

There are ways to do it easier, but not by yourself. It's a lot of work.

 

AGAIN, this post is only to discuss current active trails to add to the list! If you wish to discuss setting one up please start another topic so that this one does not get bogged down with unrelated material. Additionally, I believe you are mixing the idea of geotrails and power trails, as none of the trails on this list have anywhere near 1,000 caches.

Well it is time to create a new thread for a new year. Since so many people seemed to enjoy my geotrail thread last year I have decided to start a new one for this year. Please feel free to post any new trails that you know of so that I can add them to the ever growing list. Also if any of these trails have ended or been modified please let me know, as I do not have the time, due to a family emergency, to check out each of these trails. New additions to this list will now be marked <--New This tag will remain until the next new post, heres hoping I have to add this tag often! With all that being said, Enjoy!

Thanks for publishing this list...it's a great resource. I wish Geocaching.com would make an effort to do something like this. I was looking at Uptown Saint John Walking Tour #1 in New Brunswick because I am going to be in Saint John later this year, and from the logs, it looks like there have not been any coins in the cache for over a year, and the CO hasn't commented on people's questions about whether the coins will be replenished. So you might want to remove this one from your list.

Here's a brand new one for the the list. The Cayuga Lake Scenic Byways is a series of 20 caches with a punch in each one. Using the punch from any 11 of the caches into a log book can be redeemed for a geocoin. The CLSB is a route that circumnavigates the 40 miles long Cayuga Lake (Ithaca, where I live, is at the southern end). It's a nice road that passes by many wineries and through some pretty farm land and many views of the lake. Here's a cache at the "beginning/end" of the trail (Cayuga Lake Scenic Byway)

New additions to this list will now be marked <--New This tag will remain until the next new post, heres hoping I have to add this tag often! With all that being said, Enjoy!

Well it is time to create a new thread for a new year. Since so many people seemed to enjoy my geotrail thread last year I have decided to start a new one for this year. Please feel free to post any new trails that you know of so that I can add them to the ever growing list. Also if any of these trails have ended or been modified please let me know, as I do not have the time, due to a family emergency, to check out each of these trails. New additions to this list will now be marked <--New This tag will remain until the next new post, heres hoping I have to add this tag often! With all that being said, Enjoy!

The Athens county geotrail and the accessible geotrail are out of coins according to their website... the History trail in Athens still seems to have coins.

 

Also, there is a new trail opening in June in Clinton County Ohio that is based around a trail of Barn Quilts.
