Geocaching Etiquette 

  • Obey local laws. Follow regulations governing the use of roads and other public areas. Obtain permission before entering private property.
  • Leave No Trace. Practice “Cache in Trash Out”. Clean up litter along the way and don’t leave any behind. This helps keep trails clean.
  • Respect the Geocache. Replace the container exactly as you found it.
  • Log your find. Sign the logbook and share your experience on the app. If you take something from the cache, leave something of equal or greater value.
  • Keep ‘em moving. Only take a trackable item if you are willing to help it travel from geocache to geocache.
