Geocache

Geocaching is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure that is free to everyone! This high-tech scavenger hunt uses GPS technology to pinpoint the location of hidden caches, whose locations are posted on the internet at www.geocaching.com. Geocaching has both entertainment and educational value, becoming very popular since its creation in 2003. If you are familiar with GPS units or want to learn how to use them, Geocaching would be a good hobby to try! Up Yonda currently hosts three official Geocache sites whose descriptions can be found below.  Step-by-step instructions can be provided by our Naturalists, making it easy for families to get started with Geocaching.  School and group programs on Geocaching, GPS, as well as, map and compass can also be arranged upon request.

The terrain leading to this cache is hilly, but one can follow well maintained trails. The cache contains random buttons and coins...you do not need to keep with this theme but small geo coins and travel bugs would be perfect. The cache was placed here by Saranac48 and the Moreau Elementary Hiking and Conservation Club. This is our first attempt at a hide so we hope that it works out well. It may be more difficult in winter months, but not impossible. While on your Visit enjoy the wonderful view of Majestic Lake George's South Basin and the Narrows! Also be sure to check out the areas great history! It is loaded with stories of heroism and glory!
