Geocaching is an outdoor recreation activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches," anywhere in the world. Letterboxing is another form of treasure hunting in which clues are used from one location to the next to find the letterbox. Sometimes a compass is needed. Participants use a personalized, rubber stamp to mark in the logbook.
Watch the "Guide to Geocaching Etiquette" from www.geocaching.com to learn more.The following guidelines have been developed to provide helpful information for geocache/letterbox opportunities on Jeffco Open Space. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in a violation of JCOS Rules and Regulations and removal of the cache. Please see all rules and regulations for open space activities for more information.
*Definition of "Unmanaged (Social) Trail”: An unmanaged trail is a footpath that has visibly trampled down vegetation, making an obvious route or trail. This trail is neither named by JCOS nor identified on any JCOS map.
