BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio -- If you're one of the 4,200 pastry-lovers who have completed the Butler County Donut Trail since its launch in January, here's a reason to retrace your steps. (Do you really need one besides the custard-filled goodness?)
Geocaching is a worldwide, outdoor treasure-hunting game that uses GPS-enabled devices such as mobile phones and handheld GPS units. Players are challenged to navigate to specific coordinates in an attempt to find a hidden container (geocache).
The GeoTour version of the Butler County Donut Trail features an official GeoTour passport (available here) that must be filled out with the official code word from each stop. Once all 12 caches and code words have been found, players will be rewarded with a commemorative Donut Trail GeoCoin.
“The award-winning Butler County Donut Trail has proven to be incredibly effective at bringing new visitors to Butler County," said Mark Hecquet, executive director of the Butler County Visitors Bureau. "The Donut Trail GeoTour is a great extension of the concept and will highlight Butler County to a new audience.”
