As the Carrick Community Heritage Trail is completed, local geocaching specialists are going to be introducing caches along the entire route.
The Carrick Tourism Development Project has gained the help of specialists from the Ayrshire & Arran Geocahcing Mega Event 2014 to make sure that all the caches installed along the Carrick Community Heritage Trail are challenging and fun for any geocaching enthusiast. The trail also acts as a great introduction for those ‘muggles’ who are new to the geo-caching movement.
Geocaching is the real-world treasure hunt that's happening right now, all around you. There are 2,276,191 active geocaches and over 6 million geocachers worldwide.
This outdoor treasure hunting game works with GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
What are the rules of geocaching?
If you take something from the geocache (or "cache"), leave something of equal or greater value.
Write about your find in the cache logbook.

What do I need to go geocaching?
The only necessities are a GPS device or a GPS-enabled mobile phone so that you can navigate to the cache.
