Discover 25 Treasures of the highlands: HHLT's 25th Anniversary Geocaching Adventure

Join the Hunt! Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting activity that uses GPS-enabled devices.  To find a treasure, hunters use GPS coordinates to locate the area in which the geocache container is hidden and then attempt to find it.  HHLT has created the 25 Treasures of the Highlands geocache series to celebrate the Hudson Highlands Land Trust's 25th Anniversary.

The 25 Treasures of the Highlands geocaches have all been placed to spotlight the region’s natural resources, history, and beauty.  Can you find them all?  First one to locate all 25 Treasures of the Highlands will receive a special prize!

Here's a printable list of coordinates and descriptions. You can also play along and interact with other geocachers on
