Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area - Geocaching

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure finding game using GPS-enabled devices.  By using specific GPS coordinates, a geocacher attempts to find a geocache, a container with a log or an item inside, hidden at that location.  Although fun and appropriate for some locations, it is not allowed at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. By going off established trails, disturbing natural resources and abandoning property (a geocache) our public lands can suffer. One option for intrepid geocachers is to search for "virtual caches," "earth caches," and USGS Benchmarks, which help minimize the impact to Red Rock Canyon.
