Milford Ohio GeoTrail Info

We are pleased to share Milford Ohio USA with the global Geocaching Community! As of April 25th 2014 the Official Milford OH GeoTrail will launch with an initial 13 Geocache locations and 3 bonus locations. The official trail will include a mix of tradition cache hides, a Letterbox-Hybrid with offset, a multicache, and two simple puzzle caches. The addition caches will include an Earthcache, a Wherigo and a traditional with information about the GeoTrail and a nearby TB Hotel. (We have included a local benchmark as well!)

You can walk to complete this entire GeoTrail! However if you would like to reduce walking we would suggest driving to Milford C.F.D., Greenlawn Cemetery and historic Promont then completing the remaining portions of the GeoTrail after parking in downtown Milford on or near Main Street. This will also enable you to enjoy shopping, dining and exploring along the Downtown Main Street District!

*Please only complete the Geocaches on this trail during daylight hours.

Launch Day Events and Information

On May 3rd 2014, we invite you to enjoy a fun filled day of family friendly Geocaching in Milford OH! Feel free to spend the week before or the morning of the event completing the GeoTrail to earn your GeoCoin. Starting at 10am you will be able to stop at RRT on Main Street to register for the CITO and pick up gloves and bags to do any cleanup you would notice as your friend and family take to exploring the amazing town.

At 2pm we will group at MJ’s on Main for great food, fun and prizes! There will be a number of give-a-ways, chance to purchase the official GeoCoin if you have completed the PassPort and good social hangout time!

Following this we will gather together at Picture Party Place on Main Street to hold a birthday bash for Geocaching! On this day (May 3rd) in history, by presidential orders the Military flipped the proverbial blue switch to make civilian GPS as accurate as theirs leading to the first GPS Stash hide later being named..GEOCACHING!

(Excluding the Wherigo, most Geocachers could easily finish the Geocaches on the GeoTrail on the morning of the event, however if you work to complete the Wherigo first, you will be able to finish many of the Geocaches along the way!)

*The GEOCACHING BIRTHDAY BASH is an extra bonus event and is not part of the official launch party, however we encourage everyone to attend as it is a 2 minute walk away.
