Geocache Description:

The 2015 Metro Parks GeoTrail highlights Nature’s Masters of Disguise. The trail takes you on a tour of parks while learning about camouflage and other ways animals hide in plain sight. This year’s trail includes a variety of cache types and difficulty levels. The first 100 teams to find 15 GeoTrail caches are eligible to receive a Metro Parks Geocoin. Find all 20 GeoTrail caches to unlock the coordinates for the Bonus Cache. Trail ends Aug 31.

Join us for the kick-off of the 2015 Columbus Metro Parks GeoTrail on May 16th 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Highbanks Metro Park, Lewis Center, Ohio.  The event will be held at the Dragonfly Day Camp off W. Powell Road.  Members of the Metro Parks GeoTrail Team will be given early access to the coordinates for the Metro Parks GeoTrail 2015.  Coordinates will be published on on May 17th.  Please post “will attend” if you plan to join us.

The event will include a drawing for "First to Find" access to the coordinates.  Plan to arrive close to 10 a.m. to get your caching team's name in the drawing.  Remaining participants will receive coordinates after the drawing.

The first 100 geocaching teams to find 15 GeoTrail caches, complete the GeoTrail Code page and return the page to a location listed on the Code page will be awarded a trackable 2015 Metro Parks GeoTrail coin.  Coins will be awarded in September at the GeoTrail Celebration.

The GeoTrail is designed for all ages. We hope to see you there!
