Geocaching Hike at Severson Dells
October 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Severson Dells has many geocaches, and we are going to go find some of them! If you are unfamiliar with geocaching, you can look at our informational webpage about it here. All ages are welcome at this hike, which could be especially fun for children. Attendees do not need to have any previous experience with Geocaching or have any special equipment with them, other than an optional smartphone with the official Geocaching app installed.
This hike will be 1-2 miles long, depending on how long it takes to find different caches. We will meet at the end of the parking lot closest to Severson Dells Nature Center at: 8786 Montague Rd, Rockford, IL 61102. If you have never geocached before, please arrive 5-10 minutes early so we can explain how the game works. This hike may bring us into some brushy or uneven terrain, and may require bending down or walking over logs. However, you can still participate in this hike even if you do not want to do these movements, as most of the caches are near the trails. Long pants and sturdy shoes are recommended for this hike.
