Returning this year will be our walking cache challenge in the back half of Area 5. This challenge will include some interesting cache containers and possibly a puzzle cache. Unfortunately due to the size of Area 5 not all the GZ locations in the walking cache challenge will be uploaded to geocaching.com. With regards to Mudstone Ranch the park staff is working to have it ready soon. As of now this area is not yet open to the public. If any changes occur I will let you know.
Event page coordinates will lead you to the entrance gate of Area 5. Waypoint coordinates will bring you to home base within the event site, where registration, lunch and raffle will take place. We have also created 3 bookmark listings which will allow you to view all caches owned by Hollister Hills SVRA, to further your geocaching fun.
Registration is dependent on having a GPS unit. Only one (1) registration log book for field use will be provided per one (1) GPS unit. Registration will be from 8-9am. Coffee and other morning beverages will be available at our interpretation booth compliments of Hollister Hills Off Road Association (HHORA). Geocache search will take place from 9am-2:30pm. We encourage you to stop by home base at 12pm to enjoy a free hot dog lunch complements of HHORA.
To be eligible for the raffle at 3pm, participants must meet at home base no later than 2:30pm. One (1) raffle ticket will be given for every one (1) qualifying cache found. Only those caches listed in the Official 2015 Geocache Bash Logbook are considered qualifying caches. A completed walking cache challenge is worth seven (7) raffle tickets.
It is the policy of Hollister Hills District Staff to encourage positive use of park land and its many natural resources. Geocaching can be a positive recreational activity when practiced following established conditions and procedures. While Geocaching within Hollister Hills SVRA be vigilant and aware of your surroundings, as well as other park visitors.
Also, be aware of erosion and the impacts you have while Geocaching. Please stay on all existing roads and trails. Park your vehicle so that there is ample room for other vehicles to pass (when possible) while being aware of not driving over any vegetation or off trail. Be aware of poison oak and what it looks like year round. Also, be aware that there are ticks and snakes at Hollister Hills SVRA. We encourage participants to continuously check yourselves and other members of your group for ticks and to be cautious of snakes when near tall grass. Enjoy your time in the park and Happy Geocaching!!
Please respect the park hours of operation which are sunrise to sunset. Be aware there is a $5 dollar park fee, which can be paid at the front kiosk when coming to geocache at Hollister Hills SVRA (for this event we will be waiving the fee for all registered participants).
