Geocaching is a growing activity in the Peace Region with more and more caches being registered and more geocachers coming to seek them out every day. For those of you who have never heard of geocaching it is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS and can then share their experiences online.
Geocaching in the Peace Region is relatively new, but in Dawson Creek there are plenty of places to explore and pick up a few smiley faces. Each geocache location is a unique representation of the extraordinary nature of the Peace Region and of Dawson Creek’s distinctive history. There are geocaches of every level in Dawson Creek. For beginners there are some that are just on the side of the road or right by local businesses. For the more experienced geocacher there are caches that require more of a hike and some powers of deduction. These geocaches can also vary based on fitness level, while some are wheel chair accessible others require walks in the wilderness.
Geocaching is a great way to get to know any region and spend some time in the great outdoors. Whether you’re on vacation with the family or if you’re flying solo and just want some fresh air geocaching is the way to go. With new caches popping up in Dawson Creek all the time you’ll be hard pressed to keep up with all the amazing stories that arise with each find.
Go on an adventure with geocaching!
