ExploreWV GeoChallenge 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.

The Greenbrier River Trail stretches almost 80 miles from White Sulphur Springs in southern West Virginia up to Cass Scenic Railroad State Park in the heart of Pocahontas County. Along the trail, you will find plenty of bridges, fishing spots, tunnels, horseback roads, and many outfitters so you can rent the equipment you need. The trail follows the Greenbrier River and will take you to some of the most unique and out-of-the-way locations in West Virginia and none will disappoint in beauty or adventure. For more information on the Greenbrier River Trail, visit GeocacheWV or Greenbrier River Trail.

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 EightWednesday for placing and maintaining this cache!
