Visitor’s bureau hosts geotrail launch

| November 10, 2014

003COSHOCTON – Share in your love of treasure hunting on The Coshocton Crow Geotrail, which officially launched on Saturday, Nov. 8 at 10 a.m. To kick off the event, the Coshocton Visitor’s Bureau had a dinner and registration Friday night at Unusual Junction in West Lafayette with well over 100 local and out-of-town people in attendance. The geotrail is a series of 13 hidden cachers, and a few bonus cachers within the county with each cacher containing a hidden treasure. People are invited to start their treasure hunt by picking up a passport at the Coshocton Visitor’s Bureau or Coshocton Village Inn and Suites, the official host hotel for the trail. Passports may also be downloaded online at visitcoshocton.com/things-to-do/sports-outdoors/geocaching. When each person completes the geotrail, they will receive a special commemorative coin. Only 300 coins have been minted. Each geotrail has a theme and Coshocton’s theme is Game of Thrones. Dr. Lenie Holbrook, an Ohio University professor and geocaching consultant from Athens, and his students, have helped create Coshocton’s geotrail. “Lenie has been a huge help to us,” said Jan Myers, director of the Visitor’s Bureau. “I could never have done this without his help.” The local sponsor for the geotrail is Wiley’s Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil.
