On Saturday the kick-off event for the Fighting Falcon Geotrail was a great headway into the weekend with about 80 people who attended to learn more about geocaching as well as experience the new trail laid out by Fairmont resident Mark Webb.
Webb, an East Fairmont High School junior, described geocaching as a 21st century high tech treasure hunt that uses GPS location to find hidden objects in the real world.
On Saturday, July 21, expert geocachers and those new to the sport will come together on the campus of Fairmont State University for the area’s first geocaching workshop and the long-awaited release of the Fairmont State University Geotrail. The trail will include 15 caches hidden around campus and will includes many different varieties at varying difficulties.
