Geocaching is a fun and exciting way for everyone to explore some of the natural areas conserved by Catawba Lands Conservancy while hiking on trails along the Carolina Thread Trail. It’s fun for all ages and a perfect opportunity for families, groups or individuals to get outside, walk, hike and use technology to explore nature. With geocaching, adventurers know it’s all about the journey and the find.

Geocaching is easy. We’ve already hidden the treasures in boxes, known as caches. Now, you’ll just need to find these caches using your phone or GPS device. When you find a cache, take a memento and leave something in the cache for someone else.  Also, please write something in the log book and then register your find or talk about your experience at www.geocaching.com.  You can also share your adventure on with Catawba Lands Conservancy on Facebook and with your FB friends, too.

We also welcome you to place your own caches along our trails!  However, some of our trails are located on properties that protect sensitive habitats or imperiled species.  As such, we ask that you place caches within 10-feet of the trail.  Also, you need to fill out a short permit so we can ensure the geocache will not impact these important areas.
