Traditional Cache


Active for creation

A traditional cache is a type of geocache.


This is the original cache type consisting of a container and a log book.  Larger containers may also carry swag and/or trackables.  The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page are the exact location for the cache.[1]

For most geocachers, the majority of their finds will be traditional caches.

An ammo can marked with an Official Geocache label.

Despite their simplicity in nature, traditional caches allow a lot of room for variation in Cache Sizes, cache design, and placement, allowing for both easy and challenging hides.

Advanced caches are geocaches that have D/T above 1.5. They only are seen on the offical Mobile App. They require Premium membership to log on the app.
