Welcome to the Jack Trail GeoTour, a tourism initiative created in partnership with Tennessee Tourism, the South Central Tennessee Tourism Association, Geocaching.com and the local community and Chambers of commerce, which uses the game of Geocaching to encourage geotourism in Middle Tennessee.
Geocaching is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS and can then share their experiences online. This large community often travels long distances to hunt desirable geocaches, especially those along GeoTours.
GeoTours are a series of geocaches engagingly tied together by a common theme, such as the history of a given area or region. There is no fixed itinerary, like on a traditional trail, but rather a series of points of interest in a self-guided, goal-oriented plan.
The official Jack Trail GeoTour Passport functions as a logbook for you to track your progress as you hunt specially placed geocaches along the tour. This passport lets you record “code words” in the geocaches you find in order to qualify for the Jack Trail GeoTour geocoins.
The Jack Trail Geocoin is a special coin created to reward cachers who complete the GeoTour, by collecting points for finding these specific geocaches and eating and lodging with our Trail Partners. Each Geocoin is trackable on www.geocaching.com
