Try a Geocaching “Treasure” Hunt

Summer in Maine is great time to get outside and explore. All around Dirigo Pines are amazing spots to hike, walk and enjoy the great outdoors. One fun way to explore is geocaching — finding small treasures hidden all around you along common hiking and walking trails.

There are lots of geocaches to discover around Dirigo Pines. Using your phone or GPS device, download a geocaching app, and you’ll can find hundreds of local “treasures” — usually a small waterproof container containing a logbook. The app on your phone will provide precise coordinates — usually just to the side of a trail, often semi-hidden under a unique rock formation or interesting tree root.

Searching and discovering a cache or two or three is a fun way to spend a sunny afternoon with friends or family. After signing the logbook, the cache must be placed back exactly where you found it. Larger containers can also contain items for trading, such as toys or trinkets — bring a tiny treasure with you to trade!
