Geocache Description:

The Link to play the game using the browser on your smart phone.

Note: This is an Intercache, a brand new way to complete a geocache

Put away your GPS, and get out your smartphone. This is an interactive cache taking you on a tour of the historical signs of Buffalo’s Industrial heritage Trail on the outer harbor. Please read before you head out!

What's an intercache?

An InterCache is an interactive geocache. An intercache is a new way of creating a mystery geocache, similar to a wherigo geocache. The biggest difference is that the entire geocache can be developed, edited, and played on your mobile phone's browser with no software required to download!

How do you play?

First, make sure you have a compatible device. Go to on your cell phone's browser and select the test button. I recommend doing this outside for best results. You should see your current coordinates as well as the estimated accuracy. If you see something reasonable, you are all set. If you get an error, you may need to enable the GPS and other geolocation settings on your phone. You may also not have a compatible phone.


If your device is compatible, then head on over to the Link to play the game and start. At each of the stages you will be given coordinates, though you should not actually need them. There is a compass that has a red arrow pointing you the right direction as you move. You may have to walk a little bit before the arrow points in the right direction as this application does not have access to your phone's digital compass. Each stage will have some information about the location, but you do not have to find anything physical other than the historical signs until the final. Some of the stages will require you to answer a question before it lets you move on. All of the stages will require that you are within a given radius (20 feet) of the location before you can move on. Once you complete the intercache you can log this cache as found.

Park Information
Buffalo's Outer Harbor
Most of this intercache is located is right off the Heritage Industrial Trail bike path. Some parts of it are located in Wilkenson Pointe. Best to do this one during the day hours.

Parking & Suggestions
Ample parking is available on Fuhrmann Boulevard near the starting location. Bring a camera and capture some interesting views of Buffalo's old Industrial past and the renewed waterfront. At sunset, this is one of the best areas around to capture sunset pictures.

Make sure your phone's battery if fully charged. Start walking some to allow the navigation arrow to start pointing in the correct direction.
