2. If you take something from the geocache container, you must leave behind something of equal or greater value.
3. Log your find online.
Geocaching is a fantastic way to discover the quintessential wilderness that exists in the Parry Sound area. According to Geocaching.com, near the docks of Parry Sound there are over 250 geocaches in a 5 mile radius.
