Minnesota Geocaching Association


MnGCA is here for YOU to provide a resource for ALL Minnesota Geocachers by organizing activities and events that will improve the credibility of the sport, protect our natural resources, and strengthen the community of Geocachers in the state of Minnesota.

Our mission is to hold educational, social and informational activities to increase awareness of our sport, sponsor reports, meetings, and workshops for MnGCA members and the public on a wide area of topics, advocate for responsible land use while geocaching, and work with local, county, and state governments to promote geocaching as a family-oriented outdoor activity.

We want to help you experience Minnesota geocaching to its fullest potential!

Geocacher's Tip of the Week

This Week's Tip: Read the D/T (Difficulty/Terrain) rating of each geocache before you get there. If the T (terrain) is listed as 1 or 1.5, for example, don't climb a tree or hike a big hill to get to the cache. The CO (Cache Owner) is trying to say it is easy to get the cache. If the D (difficulty) is high, expect it to be tricky to find. Most of the the time, the CO is trying to help you plan your strategy in finding the geocache ahead of time.
