Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure-hunting game using the Geocaching App on your phone. Participants navigate to a specific location and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
Not only is geocaching a great way to get some fresh air and exercise, but it’s also a great way to explore new areas. Fort Collins, Colorado, is home to many geocaches, making it the perfect place to try this fun activity. Here are a few of the best geocaches in Fort Collins this fall.
The Horsetooth Rock GeoTour
This geo tour includes 16 geocaches hidden around Horsetooth Mountain Open Space. The caches are a mix of traditional and multi-cache, so there’s something for everyone. Be sure to bring your hiking shoes and plenty of water, as some caches require a bit of a hike.
Old Town GeoTour
If you’re looking for an urban adventure, look no further than the Old Town GeoTour. This geo tour includes 20 different geocaches hidden throughout Old Town Fort Collins. Since the caches are all within walking distance of each other, this is an excellent option if you’re short on time or looking for an easy hike.
