What do I need to go Geocaching?

All you really need to get started geocaching is a smartphone and the Geocaching app(available for Apple and Android). Once in the app you can see hidden geocaches near you, and go search for them!

How do I get started?

Once you've downloaded the Geocaching app you can see the various Geocaches around you. Find one that looks interesting and hit "Start" and the app will guide you to the geocache's location where some extra searching may be required.

When searching for any geocache it is important to have respect:

  1. Respect other people by not getting in their way, or disturbing their time at the park.
