WCG - Give 'Em All Three Barrels

The Washington County GeoTrail (WCG) launched on Saturday, September 14, 2013. The Trail consists of over thirty-five (35) geocaches placed at points of interest all over the County. Caches will be found in National, State, County and Town parks as well as at museums, wineries, historical sites and places of natural beauty. A trackable geocoin was awarded to the first 500 geocachers who completed the Washington County Geotrail. The original allotment of Coins has been exhausted and new parameters to receive the updated Coin are below.

To be eligible for the coin, GeoCachers may download the Washington County GeoTrail passport online at or pick one up in person at the Visitor Welcome Center at 6 N. Potomac Street. Completed passports may be verified on site at the above address or by mail.

Please note the following Change. Washington County GeoCoins will be available for purchase at the Visitor Welcome Center for GeoCachers who log 20 or more caches on the Washington County GeoTrail. The cost of the GeoCoin will be $10. An additional $3.50 shipping charge will apply for passports redeemed by mail.

Participating in the WCG geotrail is fun and we hope that many people join in. However, it is not a requirement for logging your find on this cache once you find the container.

WCG – Give ‘Em All Three Barrels

This multi-cache is located in small but well-situated Shafer Park in Boonsboro. The short stroll-about encompasses the founders, a time capsule, and artifacts of several American Wars.

The posted coordinates lead to the first of three historical monuments. The second two are but a moments stroll from the first. Gleaning specific numbers from the three monuments and plugging them into new coordinates will hopefully lead to a find and smiley. The cache is described as small with room for small swag or small travelers.

The final coordinates are: N 39* 30. B - E - D ; W 077* 39. A - D – C

The first monument contains two dates. The first date has two of the same digit. Plug that digit into ‘D’>

Buried beneath the second monument lies a time capsule. Plug the second digit of day of the month (it appears thrice) into ‘B’, and the last digit in the year (also appears thrice) into ‘A.’

The third monument supports a cannon, and was re-dedicated on July C, 19E2. Plug the digits, and your coordinates to the nearby cache are complete.

The Washington County GeoTrail wishes to Thank the Hagerstown Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau for their timely and continuing assistance with this Washington County adventure.

The WCG also wishes to thank the following geocachers who spent countless hours in planning and deploying the caches – ALs Guide, Always Lost 00, Kitakima, LPYankeefan, nomaland, Snurt, tazscouter, and tiger77aam.
