Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunt that uses a Global Positioning System (GPS) and online clues to help participants find caches, or hidden containers. Destination Seneca County, in partnership with Geocachers Anonymous, launched the only geocaching trail in Northwest Ohio in September of 2021. Since the launch of the trail, more than 165 geocachers have completed the trail and have traveled more than 20,800 miles to Seneca County to do so. Destination Seneca County is currently working on a new interactive geocaching trail for 2023 that will feature a new theme, caches, and locations.« Back to Blog
