The new Grand River Conservation authority geocaching policy is fairly straightforward and doesn’t differ substantially from other policies in this part of the province.

Here are some highlights from the new GRCA Geocaching Policy:

  • Cacher must complete the “Cache Information Form”
  • No specified limit to the number of caches in an area, limit to be determined by the GRCA designate.
  • Only on marked trails
  • Only 1 meter from trail, I can see this being a bit contentious.
  • The area superintendent determines acceptability.

Overall there are no surprises in this policy.  Now that there is a policy we can start to officially place caches in GRCA parks.  I think it’s time for me to get a season pass.  You should to if you are going to place a cache in a pay-for-use park.


I have been writing the cachemania blog since 2008. I'm interested in the development of geocaching and the many ways that people play the game.
