What is Geocaching?

A "geocache" (pronounced "geo-cash") is a hidden treasure that one locates by using a smartphone app or GPS device. Geocaches are hidden all around the world! With the Captain John Smith GeoTour, have an outdoor adventure, discover new places in your own backyard, and learn about history along the way.

How do I use the trail GeoTour?

Our GeoTour, designed and created by volunteer geocachers, includes more than 30 sites on six rivers. Each site represents particular stories or scenes from Captain John Smith's 1608 voyages on the Chesapeake Bay. For a map of locations and to download coordinates, visit the GeoTour website. All you need to participate is your smart phone or GPS device and a sense of adventure!
