We stowed our first geocache in downtown Akron!

This geocache is accessible to all mobility levels, it is stroller accessible, and suitable for all weather access.

Grab a GPS or your phone and see if you can find the hidden Compass Cali at the following coordinates:

Temporarily Suspended. Our Geocache was stolen. Please standby for replacement coordinates!

This Compass Cali box is hidden is a place that is pretty special to me. Long ago, I lived in downtown Akron and I used to jog nearby. I enjoyed this little pocket of downtown for so many reasons. I hope you find something fun there, too!

Per geocache custom, I’ve added a little something to the box. The first Adventurer to find the box may take the item, but please leave a small token for the next friend.

Post a picture on social media when you find Compass Cali! We will draw a winner from the entries each month and send out a prize!
