The City of Palm Coast GIS Division is proud to introduce a new activity for residents and visitors called Geocaching. Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which participants use Global Positioning Systems (GPS) to hide and seek containers called “geocaches”. There are currently thousands of geocaches hidden around the world and more added each day as geocaching has increasingly gained in popularity.
The City is using geocaching to promote the many beautiful, public resources available in the area. We’ve taken the time to plant 10 geocaches in locations we feel are the hidden gems of Palm Coast. From parks to trails to natural reserves, we’ve hidden the caches and now we’re asking you to find them.
The map above shows the locations of our planted caches. By clicking a cache, you can view information about the cache and the GPS coordinates you will use to find them. Just plug the coordinates into your GPS receiver and start hunting. The general rule of geocaching is “If you take something from the cache, replace it with something else.”. We’ve put a treat in each cache, but please play by the rules. PLEASE LEAVE THE CACHE WHERE YOU FOUND IT!
Typically geocaches contain a log book that cache finders use to sign their name and leave a comment. Our log book is hidden on this website and you’ll need to find a cache before you can sign it. If you’ve found a cache, you’ll know what to do with this…
