What is Geocaching?

Geocaching(pronounced Geo-Cash) is a GPS guided treasure hunt that takes place all over the globe, even right here in Cedar Hill, and probably not too far from your front door. Using a smartphone Geocache hunters are able to search for hidden items, and even hide their own for others to find.

It's easy!

  1. Download the Geocaching app(available for Apple and Android).
  2. Find a Geocache nearby in the app.
