Join us at the canyon as we celebrate 100 years of Texas State Parks with a special geocache challenge! Learn how YOUR local State Natural Area, it’s past, present and future, are all connected to the importance of fresh, reliable water! Take part in a very special geocache challenge and get a great trackable item while experiencing locations within the Natural Area that really are all about water.

  • The challenge is to locate every “Interprecache” hidden throughout the Natural Area.
  • There are 5 caches to find, and each cache contains either one or two special, stamped cards.
  • Your challenge: collect one each of the special, stamped card(s) placed inside the cache boxes. There are 8 stamped cards in all to collect. Return all 8 stamped cards to the Visitor Center to win a special trackable item for you to use on future geocaching.

SPECIAL NOTES:

  • Even if you’ve already found these caches, the stamped cards for this event are unique to this day; previously found cards do not count.
  • Ask at the Fee Booth or Visitor Center for the names of the 5 Interprecaches so you know which ones to find!
  • This challenge is TIME SENSITIVE! Participants have from 7AM until 3PM to compete the challenge. There can be more than one winner but the challenge ENDS AT 3PM.

Open to all ages, no pets please.

Geocachers should be capable of hiking over rugged, uneven ground with elevation gains. Some cache locations are easy to get to, some are not. Go to www.geocaching.com  to check out the “interprecaches” online ahead of time so you know what to prepare for, or contact John.koepke@tpwd.texas.gov for more information.

Be advised the Natural Area can be very busy! To ensure entrance and save time at the Fee Booth, please reserve and print out your Day Pass in advance.

Some of the events planned for this special day are subject to cancellation. Check trail conditions ahead of time by going to the GCSNA twitter feed, or the GCSNA Facebook Page.
