The Cortland County Convention and Visitors Bureau is proud to launch an exciting new geocaching adventure, the Experience Cortland GeoTour. This tour will take you along the byways of Cortland County to the secret and not-so-secret hideaways where we have stashed our caches for you to discover. Along the way you will learn about our county history that includes underground railroads, civil war camps, major league ballplayers, and possibly the best trucks ever built. You will also experience some of the nicest countryside and rural villages you will ever find in New York State.

If you like to solve puzzles we’ve incorporated one in our tour. Each geocache site you find contains a three letter code. Visit all 20 sites, record all the code letters, decipher the correct message, and claim your prize at our office.

We hope you, your family and friends will get to explore Cortland County, have some fun, learn a bit of history and enjoy the great outdoors. So, grab your GPS system, print out a map and get started today on your geocaching adventure.

Here is the list of caches that make up our Experience Cortland GeoTour Trail. If you just click on the name of the cache, it will take you to a link that has all of the information you will need to start your search. You will also be able to read about what makes that particular cache unique. Enjoy your travels!
