Nestled between the majestic beaches of Lake Erie, and a vast amount of Ohio’s agricultural heartland, Lorain County offers amazing adventures including the latest global craze – geocaching. Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunt in which the participants use GPS-enabled devices and online clues to search for hidden containers, or geocaches. The caches come in a variety of sizes and are hidden in unique and interesting public places.
The Back Roads and Beaches Geo Trail is a series of 15 caches along our premier cycling and multi-sport route Backroads & Beaches. Anyone can participate: individuals, families, cyclists and groups. Participants completing the passport form with all 15 caches logged will receive a special trackable commemorative coin. Coins are limited to the first 250 (one per household).
