Have you ever seen an individual or a small group of people walking around a pile of rocks or along a fence line trying to look like they are doing nothing?They might be geocachers. Geocaching is a world-wide activity with over 5 million people involved using global-position satellites and hand-held devices to locate a cache (a container of various sizes). Within a ten-mile radius of North Ogden there are over 1,000 different types and sizes of caches.

Cache In – Trash Out

In order to introduce more people to this exciting activity. The North Ogden Parks, Trails and Open Lands committee and the city recreation department will sponsor a geocaching event at Oaklawn Park (North 41 18.145 West 111 56.584) on September 16, 2017 between 9:00 am to 10:30 am. There will be a display to help those new to this activity learn more and get started. We will also have a trackable geo-coin for sale.
