Eugene, Cascades & Coast GeoTour

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

The GeoTour was crafted in partnership with Geocaching.com. This is Oregon's first official GeoTour and one of the first dozen launched internationally.

The entire GeoTour covers more than 200 miles (322 km) along scenic highways with 143 exciting caches. Visit historic landmarks, natural wonders and uncover caches in very special places that only the locals know.

Each edition has its own passport and can be completed within one to two days. Plan on a week to complete the whole tour.
