Jackson County Agritourism Geo-Trail (JCAT) and Kickoff Event!
The all-new Jackson County Agritourism Geo-Trail will launch on Sunday, September 6, 2020. We will be hosting a kick-off event from 9 AM to 2 PM that day to celebrate! If you are planning on attending, please log a “Will Attend” on the cache page here to let us know you’re coming!
The trail will include 12-15 stops with many new “gadget” style caches that span the agritourism highlights of Jackson County. Your journey will cover roughly 80 miles and will take 12-15 hours to complete! Note that if you have purchased a package which includes the JCAT coin, your coin is guaranteed. There is no need to rush. Take your time and enjoy the caches and all Jackson County has to offer.
Before you head out on the trail, you’ll need to grab a passport. At each cache location, once you have signed the log, you’ll stamp your passport. You can exchange your completed passport for an exclusive JCAT coin!! To be guaranteed a coin, be sure to check out our store and purchase one of our ag-maze-ing packages. Every person who buys a “Sweet as Honey” or a “Friends For-Heifer” package will be able to turn in their completed passport for a coin. Those that have not purchased a package will have an opportunity to purchase a JCAT coin while supplies last. Please note that coin quantities will be extremely limited! To guarantee your coin, be sure to visit our store and view our various packages!
There is no cost to attend the event or find the geocaches on the new JCAT Geo-Trail!
GPS Adventures Maze, Georgia
To help make the kickoff of the Jackson County Agritourism Geo-Trail the most ag-maze-ing event EVER, we have partnered with Groundspeak and the Texas Geocaching Association to bring the GPS Adventures Maze to Georgia! This is a very rare geocaching opportunity to view this exhibit. The Jackson County event will be the second time the maze has been hosted in the United States since 2014, and the first time ever in Georgia!
If you are planning on attending, please log a “Will Attend” on the cache page here to let us know you’re coming!
The Exhibit is an educational and interactive experience to share content and information about Geocaching. It provides something of interest for everyone – from the first time cacher to the “Charter” members.
A GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit Event cache icon will be available to those that complete the Exhibit and sign the log after completing the maze.
The GPS Adventures Maze exhibit is free for all people to visit! It will be open on Sunday, 9/6 and Monday, 9/7.
