GEOCACHING at High Point State Park

Geocaching Adventures at High Point State Park


Spend a few hours or the entire day discovering the wonders, and hidden treasures, that High Point State Park has to offer. Come explore along Ridge Road and Sawmill Road. Search for official Friends of High Point State Park geocaches and many more.
  
In April 2013, the Communication Technology class at High Point Regional High School designed and hid five official geocaches for the Friends of High Point State Park.

Are you planning on searching for geocaches in the winter? Please note that both Ridge Road and Sawmill Road are closed to vehicle traffic during the winter season, but you are welcome to go exploring on foot. Parking is available at the Winter Parking Lot on Ridge Road.


   CACHE-IN ~ TRASH-OUT!   
Please help keep High Point State Park beautiful. Yellow trash bags are conveniently located throughout the park for visitors to use. Look for trash bag kiosks at the park office, Lake Marcia beach area, Monument concessions building, and outside many restrooms. All trash must be taken home for disposal. Thank you!

Learn more about geocaching and log your discoveries at www.geocaching.com. All five of our official geocaches are posted online. Avid geocache adventurers will be happy to know that there are many more geocaches located in High Point State Park and the surrounding communities.
