Georgia State Parks History Trails:

The History Trail is the coolest new phase of the Geo-Challenge. For starters, there are 14 new historic sites and parks. Thirteen of these sites -- including this one -- are Multi-Caches, where you'll visit a number of locations (solving clues) that will give you the secret combination to open the geocache. Inside you'll find new prizes: History Trading Cards! New Sites, New rules, new prizes... but still the same fun and adventure of Georgia State Parks Geo-Challenge. So whether you're a first-time or a seasoned pro, you can "Get Out. Get Dirty. And Get Fit" in a Georgia State Park today!


How to Hit the History Trail:

The History Trail crosses the entire state and features 14 new Historic Sites and Historic Parks! Each site has multiple locations that you will need to visit in order to solve several clues. Once they are solved and you’ve figured out the secret combination, to unlock the geocache, you’ll collect your History Trail Trading Card. (Please take only one.The card corresponds to the site and the historic group to which it belongs. Each historic group has multiple cards (Native Americans has 4 cards, Forts has 3 cards, Historic Homes has 2 cards, Plantations has 3 cards, Museums/Battlefields has 2 cards.) When you’ve completed a set (either by visiting or trading) you can turn them into a Ranger to receive your custom souvenir tokens! Since there are 5 historic groups, you can collect all 5 souvenir tokens!
