This fun and interactive outing is great for families and children (who can hike for 3 miles). Join docent Bill Overall and REI Outdoor School instructor Steve Wood to search for geocaches, or hidden treasures, using GPS units supplied by REI (or you can bring your own units). Bring small trinkets to trade for objects you’ll find in the caches. This activity is an introduction to geocaching and is geared toward the first-time geocacher. (NOTE: This activity includes some off-trail hiking; long pants are recommended.) Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after January 31.
