Organized in four editions, the Eugene, Cascades & Coast GeoTour stretches from the Oregon Coast to the crest of the Cascades. This is Oregon's first GeoTour in partnership with Geocaching.com.
Follow your GPS on an exploration of Oregon's best kept secrets and spectacular places. The entire GeoTour covers more than 200 miles along scenic highways with 143 exciting caches. Each edition has its own passport and can be completed within a one to two days. Plan on a week to complete the whole tour.
Learn all about geocaching right here! It's free, and all you need is a GPS-enabled device, which could even be your smart phone. Follow a few simple steps to get started.
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. The Adventure Center in Springfield, just off Interstate 5 is the tour hub and a convenient start or finish for all of the editions. If you have mobility limitations, contact Adventures@EugeneCascadesCoast.org to learn about adapted tours.
