GeoTours are special collections of caches designed to take geocachers on a journey to interesting places, such as a town or city, a park, or historic site. Geocachers receive rewards for finding and logging these geocaches, as well as visiting Official GeoTour Partners along the way. Today, there are more than 3 million active geocaches in 191 different countries.
As part of the Bledsoe GeoTour, 44 geocaches have been hidden at sites across Bledsoe County and at Fall Creek Falls State Park. Discover fascinating stories from the past, spectacular views, great food and more as your GPS or smartphone guides you on an adventure through this spectacular valley.
The Bledsoe GeoTour can be accessed at www.BledsoeGeo.com and Geocaching.com app, which helps players find hidden containers called geocaches and share their experiences with others.
