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 PointRegionalHigh School designed and
hid five official geocaches for the Friends of High Point State Park.
Official Friends of High Point State Park Geocaches
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.
Please help keep
High PointState Park beautiful. Yellow trash bags
are conveniently located throughout the park for visitors to use. Look for
trash bag kiosks at the park office, LakeMarcia 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 PointState Park and the surrounding communities. What are you waiting for? Take a GPS guided adventure and discover High PointState Park.
Thank you to the Communication Technology class at High Point Regional High School for designing and hiding all five geocaches, as well as preparing the following directions.
