We participate in two different types of Geocaching at HikingUpward.com. The traditional Geocaching, where we place a small container with log book, pen, and small exchange item, and the Find A Free Hiking Stick Geocaching.
If you are the First-To-Find on one of our geocaches we have also included a HikingUpward t-shirt. These t-shirts are only placed in our geocaches or given away. So if you find one, take a pic and we'll add it to the 'Claimed' section of this page!
On hikes where we have placed traditional geocaches you will see similar information to the left on the hike pages. Enter the information in your GPS..
Geocache information is also available at geocaching.com for most of our caches for use with applications such as the iPhone Geocache app.

Find A Free Hiking Stick Geocaching
Over the years we have received many emails regarding
the hiking sticks we use and were to get them. Hand crafted and
personalized by a couple in Missouri they market them under the
name "Wilderness Walker", you can purchase them on
eBay. They will last a lifetime with proper care.
To have some fun we are 'planting' brand new personalized 'Hiking
Upward' sassafras sticks on some of our longer hikes. Find one
and keep it for free! Here is an example of what a planted stick looks like.
the hikes with 'Find A Free Hiking Stick On This Hike!' log/lat
information located on them still have, to the best of our
knowledge, hiking sticks. Sometimes a hiking
stick has already
and the person forgot or hasn't been able to email us yet so
we could remove the info from the page ... sorry we can't guarantee
they're still there.
Sorry, all the hiking sticks have currently been claimed. We will be putting some more out soon!
