What you'll do

Join us for a treasure hunt walking adventure through Golden Gate Park. I will show you how to play the game of geocaching along the way. You will be surrounded by gorgeous views and hidden treasures in the fifth most visited urban park in the United States.

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunt game played by millions around the globe. We find secret treasure containers that are hidden in plain sight, trade a small prize and then replace the container for the next player to discover. You walk by these EVERY DAY without knowing something is hidden there! There are 660 geocache treasures hidden in San Francisco and 50,000 in the Bay Area!

On our trek, we will seek 4 geocaches together and hike through my favorite gorgeous urban trails. I’ll point out all the awesome parts of the park you need to come back to. I will give you lots of tips on how to find geocache containers and share stories of my favorite geocaching adventures. Along the way, I will point out some hidden secrets of Golden Gate Park that locals don't even know about. Check out more pics from our past adventures on Instagram: @geocachingsf

After our adventure together, you'll be prepared to find any of the 3 million geocaches hidden in 190 countries!

This experience is great for dates, groups & team-building! I can design a custom adventure for your group if you message me.

Hi, I'm Jess and I'm a geocaching adventurer! Over the past 17 years, I have found 6500 geocaches in 31 states & 6 countries.
I have organized hundreds of geocaching outings around the world. I've found epic geocaches that took me through underground tunnels, abandoned buildings and on adventures that feel similar to National Treasure. Every geocache takes me to a new place I've never been before or helps me see my city from a new angle.
I've lived in San Francisco for 8 years and am still discovering new hidden treasures thanks to geocaching. Golden Gate Park is my backyard. I bring all of my friends visiting from out of town on this adventure to show them my favorite hidden places in the park.

I have been extremely cautious during the pandemic & am fully vaccinated.

Jessica did a phenomenal job introducing our group to the world of geocaching and sharing her passion for this fun and unique activity. She led our group through secret pockets of Golden Gate park and shared stories about some of the history of the park that none of us would have known otherwise. We had a blast and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an awesome outdoor experience and a window in to this very cool community.

I met jessica at a virtual event and got to know about geocaching. I thought it will be a great gift for my husband who likes to explore new places. I booked the session and I am glad he liked it. Jessica told us lot of stories about the place and herself. She told us how she started this hobby and has been pursuing it for 17 years which is incredible. Thank you, Jessica for lovely experience.

I had never even heard of Geocaching when I went on this, but it was the perfect introduction to this fun, secret world. Jessica was a great host - enthusiastic and knowledgeable, but also very patient and kind. It was a beautiful way to see the park, discover some unique SF facts, and learn a fun new hobby you can do anywhere. It's a great tour for kids and adults! Highly recommend! :)
