We will be re-launching our Explore More GeoTour on June 12th at 9 am with 35 new caches! They will be hidden at outside locations throughout Belmont County. Participants who find the caches are asked to take a selfie with the cache and sign our log sheet. You must complete 30 caches on the tour to receive a Belmont County Geocache coin. Belmont County cache sites include museums, attractions, parks, and historical landmarks. The Belmont County GeoTour offers players and visitors the chance to embark on a treasure hunt in the local area, all while social distancing. Some of the sites include the Belmont County Heritage Museum, Barkcamp State Park, Raven Rocks, and the Schaeffer-Campbell Covered Bridge. Players must download the Geocaching App to begin their journey. Once 30 out of 35 selfies/photos of caches are submitted to the Belmont County Tourism Office at , players will be rewarded with a geocoin. If participants find all 35 caches, they will receive a coin and be entered into a quarterly drawing for prizes. The Tourism Office is located inside the Ohio Valley Mall and open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Its mailing address is 67800 Mall Ring Road, Unit 485, St. Clairsville, OH 43950. Participants may also collect their coins at the Ohio Valley Mall customer service desk.
We will be passing out goodie bags to the first 100 participants, located at Walnut Grove Cemetery in Martins Ferry, Ohio. More details to follow.
