Geocaching at Arabia Mountain

7/25/2014, 6 a.m.

Techies can hit the trails and become geocaching experts at the “Geo-PATH” at the Arabia Mountain PATH.

The digital treasure hunt adventure along the 30-plus mile Arabia Mountain Path uses a GPS, like your smartphone. Players hunt for more than 40 geocaches hidden along the trail, log their finds and gather rewards.

Mera Cardenas, Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance executive director, said geocaching is a fun, unique way to combine hiking or biking with technology.

“And you might discover something interesting along the way,” she said.
