|Trek Ten Trails is a free web-based recreation program launched in 2007 that is designed to get
families “off the couch” and outdoors to enjoy nature in Polk County’s many parks and nature
preserves. Each cycle highlights different trails with new geocaches which can be located with or
without a GPS unit. Trekkers choose trails to hike and validate their game cards with self-inking
stamps found in the geocaches. Hosted hikes are generally conducted in the fall and spring of each
year with an annual celebration in November for those completing a game card.
Get 10 different stamps on your Game Card and mail it in by
November 6, to eligible for a Certificate of Completion and a
souvenir token* (Geocoin or Pathtag) at the Annual Celebration.
|FREE GAME CARDS
Game cards are available at
any Polk County Public Library,
Circle B Bar Reserve, and
other Polk County offices.
