Geocaching was started right outside of Estacada near Viola. A guy buried a stash of weird items and then posting the GPS coordinates on the Internet to see if anyone could find it. Geocaching was born. Now Geocaching is a world wide sport with caches extending in to space. Some caches are easy to find while other can prove to be quite difficult. It is a great sport for anyone looking for a reason to explore new places. Geocaching will bring you to explore the world in a new way on your own time and with the people you love. If you are already in to geocaching or it is a new experience for you, Estacada is a destination for geocachers from all over the world.
