Share your favorite local geocaching place to log a Locationless Cache!

“I never would have known about this place if not for geocaching.”

The sentiment is voiced so often that it’s almost a cliché in the geocaching community. As the Year of the Hide celebration continues, we’re thrilled to launch GC9FAVE – Discovered while geocaching – Locationless Cache. By logging this cache, you’ll score a rare cache icon and share a favorite local place that you discovered with geocaching!

Maybe you’ll choose a place where you hid a cache, or perhaps somewhere you discovered when searching for a cache. This Locationless Cache is available to log August 17, 2022 through December 31, 2023. Once you’ve visited your favorite local spot, follow these steps:

Go to the Locationless Cache page:

  • Via the direct link
  • By searching for GC9FAVE on or in the‎ Geocaching® app.

In order to log a find on the Locationless Cache, you must include one (1) photo of yourself or a personal item at your favorite local place that you discovered while geocaching. (Old photos are not permitted.) Be sure to tell us where the place is located (for example, the city of Prague, or the GC code of a geocache if it does not contain a spoiler).

While the cache page is now published, it will not open for logging until August 17, 2022. This gives you some time to think about which favorite local place you would like to revisit.

Check out the new episode of the Inside Geocaching HQ podcast to hear more about this Locationless Cache.

We can’t wait to see the favorite local places you share with the world!
