Star Spangled GeoTrail

Our great partners at the National Park Service also have set up a Star Spangled Banner GeoTrail!

Geocaching is fun for all ages. On the SSB Geotrail, cachers have the chance to visit urban and rural areas, forts and museums, battlefields, and nature preserves. The geotrail complements the Star-Spangled Banner Trail and the Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Watertrails Network. – NPS, Star Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
