About the Armstrong GeoTrail and Geocaching
The Armstrong GeoTrail (ACGT), a project spearheaded by the Armstrong County Tourist Bureau and the Armstrong Rails-To-Trails Association, utilizes the booming pastime of Geocaching and mixes it with history and tourism. We hope visitors will learn a little about Armstrong County, its history, people and unique attributes!
Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache anywhere in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology and then share the geocache’s location online. Anyone with a GPS device can then try to locate the geocache. A geotrail is a guided treasure hunt where participants follow a certain path to find the treasures at specific places of interest. Currently, there are over 400 geocaches in the 16201 Kittanning zip code, nearly 12,000 within 100 miles of 16201, and nearly 20,000 in Pennsylvania.
