Rules and Links
The latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates for each cache will be available at www.geocaching.com. You will need to create a free account at geocaching.com to access the geocache locations. You can also search for the caches by typing in “MLCG” in the keyword search.
Caches may be found in an outdoor recreation destination, a key heritage location or an environmental education site- all ways the Greenway is making new connections between old neighbors.
Using the Global Positioning System (GPS), geocachers will seek each cache. At each cache there will be either a code or a question that leads to a code. You will record that code in the official MLCG Logbook. You must find at least 4 caches from each of the six regional Greenway clusters to claim a trackable, commemorative geocoin. There will be a total of 24 finds. Each cache will be given a name that identifies which cluster it is in. Once you have collected the codes, the Logbook can be turned in to the Allegheny Ridge Corporation. After the logbook is verified, the geocacher will be given the MLCG geocoin. Only the first 500 geocachers to complete the MLCG Logbook will receive the geocoin.
Geocaching families may keep multiple Logbooks but only one geocoin will be allowed per mailing address.
Did you set out to find a cache, and then realize you didn’t have enough day light? Or did you get caught in unusually high water? Or did you just have an overall great time with your family while completing the geotrail?
