The Savannah Coastal Refuges GeoTrail gives visitors an opportunity to learn more about the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Wildlife Refuge System, and the Savannah Coastal Refuges Complex while enjoying the challenge of Geocaching.


Please be careful not to damage refuge property, take souvenirs, or litter. Here is how to participate:


  1. Obtain a Savannah Coastal Refuges GeoTrail Passport from the Savannah NWR Visitor Center or download a PDF version here.
  2. Go to Geocaching.com, create a log-in, and find the GPS coordinates and more information for the Savannah Coastal Refuges GeoTrail locations. The geocache listings for each cache can be found on the passport.
  3. Start your search and locate all 7 caches using a hand-held GPS unit. The cache containers are sealed boxes, labeled as a Savannah Coastal Refuges GeoTrail geocache. Caches are all located within 50 miles of Savannah, Georgia, in Georgia and South Carolina. 
  4. When you find a GeoTrail cache, log your name and any comments into the logbook inside the cache and punch your Passport with the unique orienteering punch for that specific Refuge. Be sure to put the stamp back into the container for the next person to use!
  5. Be help us by picking up any trash you find while you play. Also, please do not leave anything behind in the containers.
  6. Complete all of the GeoTrail's caches to get a custom, trackable challenge coin! Bring your completed passport into the Savannah NWR Visitor Center to receive your coin (coins will not be mailed). Click on the links below to view the coin!
