Geocaching Hike

Los Trancos Preserve
Approximate Total Miles

Join Docent Naturalists Joyce Tang and Melissa Hero to search for geocaches, or hidden treasures, using supplied GPS units. This fun and interactive outing is great for all ages. You're encouraged to bring small trinkets (inexpensive toys less than two inches in length are ideal) to use as trade items for the cache. This activity is an introduction to geocaching and is geared toward the first-time geocacher, but all are welcome. Bring a snack. (Note: This activity includes some off-trail hiking; long pants are recommended and closed-toe shoes are required.) Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after May 4 at 12:00 p.m. (Noon) and close on May 17 at 2:00 p.m.
