A walk with a difference, geocaching at Clumber Park

Visitors finding a geocache

Geocaching is an exciting outdoor adventure for the whole family. It’s a treasure hunt for the digital generation, where you can enjoy the freedom of being outside and discovering new places. All you need is a hand-held GPS or smartphone and a sense of fun.

What is a geocache?

A geocache or ‘cache’ is a small waterproof treasure box hidden outdoors.
 
Geocachers seek out these hidden goodies guided by a GPS-enabled device that uses coordinates, or ‘waypoints’, downloaded from geocaching websites.
 
 

Seek out treasure in the park

With over 20 caches on Clumber, our geocaching trail will help you to take hide and seek to a new level. So if you are craving fresh air mixed with some adventure why not have a go?
 
Hidden in numerous places across Clumber Park, our caches are waiting for you to discover what is hidden inside.
 
 

What you'll need

You will need a GPS to track your treasure, the great news is if you do not have one, but if you own a smartphone you may be able to download a geocaching app.
 
You input your location and the GPS will advise how many caches are nearby, you then choose which one you want to find and start your treasure hunt.
 
 

When you've struck gold

Once you have found the cache there are a number of things you can do. Simply note in the log book that you have found it and on what day or, to make it more exciting, you can take part in the treasure swap, you take one piece and replace it with another treasure.
 
You could even purchase geocaching coins on-line and log their location, then track where in the world they are travelling.
 
 

Leave a message for us

Our geocaches are placed and maintained by a team of volunteers, so why not add comments in the log book of how you found it.
