Geo-Caching and Letterboxing

Geo-caching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geo-caches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world. The Raquette River Blueway Corridor contains countless caches for you to find along waterways, in the woods and in our hamlets and Villages. Visit www.visitnys.org or or www.geocaching.comfor more information.

Many of the communities along the Raquette River provide great opportunities for Letterboxing enthusiasts.  Letterboxing is an intriguing pastime combining artistic ability with “treasure-hunts” in parks, forests, and cities around the world. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by cracking codes and following clues. The prize: an image from a miniature piece of art known as a rubber stamp—usually a unique, hand-carved creation.
