Geocaches in Kensington Metropark


There are 11 regular, 7 small, 1 micro, 5 multi  and 6 earth caches

in Kensington Metropark.  Click for Bookmark Table. 

Mass Projection is available from the picnic area, but it requires advanced

projection work.


In addition, 10 new caches will be launched the day of the picnic.  A drawing will

determine "First to Find Head Starts" for these new caches.  



As in past years you will have the opportunity to test

your skill of using your GPS to get closest to the pin.

Roger from South Lyon Trekkers presents the History of the Metroparks book to Jeff of the Trail Mix 8 for their closest to the pin win.  Congratulations
This will be the 8th Metroparks Geocaching Adventure picnic.
