  • Athens County GeoTrail - Handicap Accessible
    by Partner Author

    Welcome to Athens County!

    These are the first GeoTrails in Ohio! Also, it is the ONLY handicap-accessible trail in the nation.

    To introduce you to all we have to offer, we have created two official Athens County GeoTrails, which features both a traditional version and one that is fully handicap-accessible. These trails will be available starting June 18, 2011.Coordinates and cache locations will be published at 8:00am!

    To introduce these new geotrails, we will be hosting a kick-off event at the Dairy Barn Cultural Arts Center in Athens from 7:00-9:00pm. There will be food, entertainment, and prizes. Food is donated by Kiser's BBQ Shack! The best BBQ in town! Grand prize is a GPS Receiver donated by the Athens Walmart! Following the event, we invite you to join local cachers on a night caching experience that is part of our kickoff. Three new night geotrails will be published during our event. Other new traditional caches will be published the day of the kickoff event.

    The Holiday Inn Express of Athens is the official Geocaching hotel and has offered a special reduced rate of only $80/night! You may call 740-592-4640 to make reservations. Just mention "Geocache" and you'll receive the special rate!
