Geocache Description:

23 June 2024, 11:30 - 12:30

Let's meet for a hike and some GeoChatting!


When: Sunday, June 23 @ 11:30am


Where: Fort Ransom – Little Twig Trail, about 1mile round trip


Why: For the fourth year, the North Dakota Park & Recreation Department (NDPRD) has issued a statewide “12 Months – 12 Hikes” Challenge.  To participate, just pick and hike a qualifying trail in one of the 14 participating state parks and recreation areas.  You can complete your hikes all in one park or explore any of 14 locations across the state.   NEW THIS YEAR - the challenge is going mobile!  There will be a fresh hiking challenge every season (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) of 2024 through the new North Dakota State Park mobile app.  Make it your goal to hike at least three trails each season.


The North Dakota Geocaching Association (NDGCA) would like to help everyone complete their hiking challenge and climb the leaderboard.  To do this, we will be hosting an event in a different state park each month, so we can get together with other geocachers and hike. 


What: If you attended the NDGCA Caching & Caming weekend and just don't want the fun to end or love to hike and will be in the area join us for a hike at Fort Ransom State Park.  We will meet at the trail head, wait at least 10 minutes in case anyone is running late and then start the hike. Please dress for the weather, I will have some refreshment after the hike.


Reminders: A daily pass ($7) or annual ND state park pass ($35) is required to enter. Dress for the weather/trails
