Geocaching in the Blue Ridge Mountains
Use your GPS to search for hidden treasure.

Want to go on a unique adventure in Georgia’s Blue Ridge? Geocaching is a fun and exciting way to discover some of the most amazing places in our area. Geocaching is a kind of high tech outdoor treasure hunt, where you use a GPS unit to track down a cache that has been hidden.
Once you find it, you can participate in the fun and goodies that are hidden within. Take something, leave something, sign the logbook are the basic rules of the game. Please leave the cache well hidden and make sure you are not observed at the We Were Swingin’ geocache, it’s part of the fun to keep the cache hidden for the next geocacher. We have hidden 4 geocaches in Georgia’s Blue Ridge and all have a different kind of treasure in them. The coordinates for each are below. Just enter them into your GPS unit, track them down and join the fun!

The Welcome Wow (N 34° 52.508’ W084° 17.950’) hint: you’re sure to feel welcome when you step in the doors. This is the place to start all your tours.

Outdoors, Onward and Upward (N 34° 51.836’ W084° 19.630’) hint: surrounded by all that you need in the woods, ask where the cache is and look for the goods.

If Art Had a Heart (N 34° 51.827’ W084° 19.622’) hint: up steps and through columns that's the hard part, ask the art people, that's where you start.

We Were Swingin’ Cache (MORE DIFFICULT) This is a challenging geocache and to find it you will have to be resourceful. First, use our self-guided tour, Hiking Trail Access Points, available from the self guided tours button above, to get directions to the Swinging Bridge parking area. Then go to a GPS fix at (N 34° 44.211’ W084° 10.004). Once at this point follow the Benton McKaye Trail up a strenuous climb to find the cache at ( N 34° 43.873’ W084° 10.183’).
