About Our GeoTour
Compass at Dee Wright Observatory by Cari Soong The Eugene, Cascades & Coast region is home to Oregon's first GeoTour. We teamed up with Geocaching.com to take you on a real life treasure hunt, complete with new adventures and awesome deals for cachers.

Organized in four editions, the Eugene, Cascades & Coast GeoTour stretches from the Oregon Coast to the crest of the Cascades. Follow your GPS on an exploration of Oregon's best kept secrets and spectacular places.

The entire GeoTour to-date covers more than 200 miles along scenic highways with 108 exciting caches. Plan on multiple days to complete the whole tour. Each edition has its own passport and can be finished within a shorter time-frame of one to two days.
Locally-made limited edition geocoins are currently available for the Oakridge/Westfir Edition and the Florence Edition of the GeoTour. The McKenzie River Edition coin is no longer available. 

The Eugene, Cascades & Coast Adventure Center in Springfield, just off Interstate 5 is the tour hub and a convenient start or finish for all of the editions.

The caches cover a variety of diverse terrain and not all sites are accessible year round. Before setting out, go to Tripcheck.com and call 511 for current road and weather conditions.

If you have mobility limitations, contact Adventures@EugeneCascadesCoast.org to learn about adapted tours.
