ExploreWV is a new group of Geocache enthusiasts in West Virginia brought to you by the WV Department of Education and the Arts, the WV Division of Tourism, and the WV Division of Culture and History. Through ExploreWV, various Geocaching trails and challenges will be organized, providing an excellent and adventurous way to see our beautiful Mountain State. You will be treated to some of the state's best tourist spots, museums, historical sites, Main Streets, and so much more.

The first ExploreWV GeoChallenge is the WV Geocoin challenge. Be one of the first 250 geocachers to complete the inaugural event of ExploreWV and receive a limited-edition West Virginia Geocoin. The WV Geocoin Challenge is a four-part adventure that will take you throughout the Mountain State where you will discover hidden caches at tourist attractions, museums, and historic markers.

Each "cachegory" will contain nine to 10 caches and seekers must find and document at least five caches from each, plus the cache at the West Virginia State Museum. Documentation will be through an official ExploreWV Playbook and you must find clues in each cache and document them in a crossword puzzle to receive the limited-edition Geocoin. There is a limit of one coin per household.

But remember, to receive your official ExploreWV Playbook and to be eligible for the West Virginia Geocoin, you must be a registered member of ExploreWV GeoChallenge. Visit us online at GeocacheWV to register and download the Playbook.


Chief Logan State Park is a prime example of what a State Park should be. They have miles of hiking and horseback trails, a fishing pond, a lodge and recreational facilities, and various playground areas and picnic shelters. To make Chief Logan above your average park, they also have a free museum called Museum in the Park that showcases a vast amount of West Virginia history. Exhibits include memorabilia from the film We Are Marshall, a small replicated coal mine, and a series of displays that portray life in West Virginia. For more information on Museum in the Park, visit GeocacheWV or Museum In The Park.

You will be seeking an ammo can. There will be a label under the lid with a little fact about the area and the code word needed for documentation in the Playbook. Please use etiquette and be courteous when Geocaching and place the container exactly where you found it.

A special thanks goes to WVhunter74 for placing and maintaining this cache!
