Geocaching Power Trail Questions: types

ET Highway in Colorado?
ET Highway in Colorado?

We, the GCCO board, have been discussing the idea of a Power Trail. This idea has morphed into quite a behemoth project. Some of the ideas have been to make the trail eventually span the state from North to South (or vice versa of course). I have no idea how many caches it would take to pull off something like that but it should be fun either way.

The questions for this post are:

What types of caches should be in the power trail?

Should it only be traditional caches or should it include all types?

Should there be different sizes?

  1. Here is my two cents on power trails. We did one in January on the C & D canal here is a GC:
    GC2THNG. We did 25 that day, and really didn’t see the point. They were all .5 away from each other, we actually drove to each one. My husband drove, I grabbed the cache and signed the sheet. They weren’t really hidden except under a rock and they were all prescription bottles. I guess if you want the numbers the power trails are a good idea. It goes quicker with more than one person doing them, though.

    1. Personally, I agree with your thoughts on power trails. I prefer to hike for about 6 hours to get my smileys. However, there are others (like my wife and daughter) that like to rush around grabbing a bunch in ind day. One of my favorite things about geocaching is just that, there is something for everyone. We will see how it turns out.
