Geocaching, in its simplest form, is the search for a 'cache', containing small items and a log book, hidden in various locations.  Participants can use a GPS with coordinates or clues to find these hidden 'treasures'.  This is a fun activity that can be enjoyed by the entire family with various levels of difficulty assigned to each geocache.  Explore Gold Country has placed a large number of geocaches throughout the Gold Country region, this includes Ashcroft.  You can locate several geocaches within the Village, or use Ashcroft as a base for exploring the surrounding area.  For more information and to get started, visit Gold Country's Geocache Website.  There you can obtain coordinates, clues, and an article about each of the geocaches found in Gold Country.
