Geocaching is a great way to explore the outdoors, and Talkin Tarn has a number of secret Geocaches to be found. If you have never tried this activity before then Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook (with a pen or pencil). The geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name.
