Geocaching at Trefriw Walking Festival

If you were out and about in North Wales last month, you may have come across Peter, wearing his Geocaching Hat, doing one of his regular Introductions to Geocaching. As I'm sure you know, Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game, using GPS technology to find hidden boxes of "treasure". The object of the game is to find the boxes and swap little trinkets of your own with what's already there. You can also hide caches of your own provided you have permission from the landowner, and your site is not too close to a pre-existing cache. It's great fun, and a good way to motivate kids to get into the outdoors. You can find out more at

As part of his work for Walking North Wales, Peter regularly helps out at local walking festivals by offering a geocaching course. On Sunday the 19th of May he was at Llyn Crafnant for the Trefriw Walking Festival, taking a group to some of the caches dotted around the lake. The weather was superb that day, and a good time was had by all. We're very grateful to Dave Brown who kindly offered to act as the first aider for the group.

Off on the trail.

Lovely Spring weather
