A family-fun geocaching event!
For centuries pioneers have been discovering new adventures in Washington County. Today visitors can explore the hills and valleys of southeast Ohio with a high-tech treasure hunt called geocaching.
In celebration of Marietta's 225th birthday, in June the Marietta Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau will be unveiling the county's first geocaching trail – an exploration of sites new and old leading to fun and treasure.
The quest begins on Friday, June 7 with a party in Muskingum Park and the unveiling of the first three trail clues. Be one of the first 250 to complete the trail and receive a coin commemorating your voyage!
Geocaching is an international craze involving the use of a GPS system to search for hidden containers, or geocaches, in some very interesting public places. Nearly anyone can participate in the game and it can be played by families, groups, or individuals. The trend has become so popular that there are an estimated 1.3 million active geocaches worldwide.
