Geocaching & Letterboxing


Both geocaching and letterboxing are real-world outdoor treasure hunting games. Players try to locate hidden weatherproof boxes with surprises in publicly-accessible places.

Geocaching

In geocaching, players try to locate the containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online.

There are more than 50 geocaching sites in Hopewell alone. And there are more than a dozen along or proximate to the Lawrence Hopewell Trail. To see where they are, follow the link below:

Make a geocache on the trail and let us know!

Letterboxing

In letterboxing, players try to locate the containers, called letterboxes, by following riddles and clues. Individual letterboxes usually contain a log book, an often hand-carved rubber stamp and may contain an ink pad. Finders make an imprint of the letterbox’s stamp on their personal log book, and leave an imprint of their personal stamp on the letterbox’s logbook.

Currently there are only 2 in Pennington and 2 in Princeton:
