Description

Geocaching is an outdoor adventure game similar to a treasure hunt played with a GPS device. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, then share your experiences online. There are over a million active geocaches around the world and now, with the RiverWalk GeoTour, there are even more reasons to bring the family and hike along the Chattahoochee RiverWalk; check out the longest urban whitewater course as well. Hiking, biking, and now kayaking!
Steps to the Riverwalk GeoTour:
* Download your RiverWalkGeoTour Grid Sheet
* Obtain a RiverWalk GeoTour Grid Sheet from the Columbus, GA Convention & Visitors Bureau (900 Front Avenue 31901) or download it online by clicking here.
* If you are not already registered to geocache, go to www.Geocaching.com, create a log-in and find the GPS coordinates and additional information for the RiverWalk GeoTour locations.
* Start your search and locate one or all caches using a hand-held GPS unit. The cache containers are labeled as a RiverWalk GeoTour geocache. Caches are located in 32 points along the 15-mile Chattahoochee RiverWalk in Columbus, GA.
