Cache Distances

Recommended Posts

Ok, I know there is a 528 foot cache placement distance.

But how do I find the distance between two caches or for that matter between any two given sets of coordinates?

I have searched all over the geocaching web pages and am surprised that given the importance of this there

are no references as to how to check it.

In addition to the online techniques, you can also go to one set of coordinates, then enter the other set of coordinates into your GPSr and see how far those coordinates are from your current location. This technique is subject to the inherent inaccuracy of your GPSr, of course.

If you're in the Geocaching.com app on a smartphone, you can go to "Find Neaby Caches" and it will pull up a list which tells you distance from your current location.

One of the few advantages of being a cache owner in my area. I never even give a thought to the 528' rule....the distance to the next nearest cache is measured in miles, not feet 😊
