COSHOCTON – Participants of all ages and skill levels enjoyed a relaunch of the Coshocton Crow Geotrail which was held at Raven’s Glenn Winery & Restaurant on Friday evening, Sept. 7. Professor Lenie Holbrook of Ohio University used his Creativity class to relaunch the Geotrail with several new caches introduced throughout the county. Many of the cachers in attendance completed the original Coshocton Crow Geotrail and were eagerly awaiting the relaunch.

There are 13 required caches and 10 bonus caches with some in familiar locations and some in new locations spread throughout the county. Those that attended the event received some special hints and tips to get them started on the Geotrail.

For those not familiar with a Geotrail, participants use their smartphone to locate “caches” through GPS and log their success at the cache. Those that complete the Geotrail receive a special coin that is coveted by cachers worldwide. As one participant said, “A Geotrail is kind of like a world-wide scavenger hunt”.

The Coshocton Crow Geotrail went live at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning, Sept. 8.

Dr. Holbrook said, “This trail, and several others like it came about because of a creativity class that I teach. We decided to keep the trail intact – tomorrow the Crow comes back with some of the caches in the original spot but others we moved just enough and added a few new locations to the mix. It’s still 13 required caches to get the coin and 10 bonus caches. Each cache has a letter in it that will spell out “Coshocton Crow” when all 13 are found and logged.”
