Are you ready to explore the Hudson parks searching for some unique and challenging caches? Do you like puzzles? Would you like to learn a little of Hudson’s park and cemetery history? The Friends of Hudson Parks Geocaching Adventure continues in its 12th year. This is a perfect activity to get out into the parks in any season to get some exercise, both mental and physical. The 2023 caches hidden throughout the Hudson Parks are the foll0wing:
- FOHP1-23 Wood Hollow (Hudson park history)
- FOHP2-23 Historic Hudson Cemeteries
- FOHP3-23 Maple Grove Park
- FOHP4-23 Cascade Park
- FOHP5-23 Hudson Springs West
- FOHP6-23 Hudson Springs East
- FOHP Bonus 2023 – Trumbull Woods
Each cache will require you to solve a puzzle to find or access the cache, so be sure to read the cache descriptions before heading out on your adventure. Record the code found in each of the 6 caches to determine the coordinates for the bonus cache.
Complete the 2023 Geocaching Adventure form (click here to download the 2023 form) by recording the code from each of the caches and adding the sticker you will find in the bonus cache. Then drop your completed form in the mail box at the Hudson Springs Park entrance booth or mail the completed form to Friends of Hudson Parks, P.O. Box 941, Hudson, OH 44236. Each cacher who turns in a properly completed form will receive an original 2023 Friends of Hudson Parks PathTag (collectable coin) while supplies last and a chance to win a $100 gift certificate from a local merchant. Your PathTag will be mailed to you.
All of the 2021 and 2022 Geocaching Adventure Series caches remain available, and you can still receive a 2021 or 2022 PathTag (while supplies last) for completing each of those series (click to download the the 2021 form or the 2022 form).
