Geocaching is a great way to experience the Corridor. These high tech treasure hunts are hidden all around the Corridor, offering people a chance to explore and get to know some of the areas top attractions and hidden gems.
Geocaching offers year round fun that can be had by all. Participants are given clues to hidden caches that can be located via hints and GPS coordinates that are posted on geocaching.com. In Carbon County, there are over 80 caches just waiting to be found. And in the early summer 2023 the Corridor is launching a new SPX GeoTour. This tour is designed to raise awareness around Stewardship, Preservation and responsible Xploration of the area.
If you are eager to get out and start hunting for these hidden caches, then log on to geocaching.com and create an account and search up "Carbon County, Utah" and if you find a cache or enjoy trying, be sure to post it to social (no location spoilers!!!) using the the hashtag #CachingCarbon.
