Geocache in Georgia

A Geocaching Adventure in Clayton County

It’s always fun to uncover hidden treasures, and geocaching is a great way to discover places you might not visit or see an old favorite location in a new light.

What is Geocaching?

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt where participants use a GPS system to find boxes filled with trinkets, or in the case of Clayton County, trading cards. Participants take a trading card from the box and leave a trinket or card of their own. Some boxes also contain stamps for participants to collect and a logbook to record your find.
