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 countrysides 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.
