Geocaching Leads to Fairfield County Treasures

A box of trinkets wedged under a tree may be the prize, but the hunt may be the real reward in geocaching in Fairfield County .

There are 1,441,880 hidden treasures and over 5 million poeple searching for them worldwide, according to the website Geocaching.com . The way it works it this: someone hides a box of trinkets, records the GPS coordinates and uploads them to a website like Geocaching.com. Players pick the treasure they want to find, plug the coordinates into a handheld GPS device or an iPhone and start searching.

When they find the treasure -- usually a box of items like toy cars, bracelets and other souvenirs -- they pick a few treasures to take home and leave behind some of their own for the next geocacher to find.

A search for geocaches in Fairfield County includes treasures with the following names:

- Schnuffles' Saugatuck Valley Stomp

- Songs from the Woods

- Devil's Treehole Cache

- Seven Nasty Smells : Grinchmas 2010

- Cathedral In The Pines
