El Caminito del Rey (The King’s Little Pathway) is a 3 km (1.8 mi) walkway in Spain. The width of the path is only 1 meter (3.3 ft) wide and anchored into the side of this rockwall perched over 100 meters (330 ft) from the river that flows below.
A series of geocaches were placed to highlight The King’s Little Pathway which is only 1 of 35 sections along the 650 km (40 mi) Great Málaga Path. Image by SoRo4.

Along a Berkeley County trail in West Virginia are thirteen unique gadget caches. The lovingly constructed “Name that Tune” certainly won’t fall flat, and is sure to test both your musical and geocaching skills. Using the drop-down xylophone, visitors play the corresponding notes found on the cache page. Once you figure out the tune, that's where your geo-skills and riddle solving come in: the last four notes of the melody correspond to the numbers needed to open up the lock on the side of the cache, revealing the log book for your own musical signature.

This geocache is in a former military zone which is now used by the public as a recreational area. It’s not suitable for small children, people with claustrophobia, or people with nyctophobia (fear of the dark), but if you’re up for a hair-raising adventure, then this is your cache. Would you dare venture to find the “Deep Darkness” geocache? Image by DrKox

In 1994, the USS Kittiwake (a Chanticleer-class submarine rescue ship) was decommissioned after 49 years of service. In 2011, after much environmental, legal, and logistical wrangling, the ship was purposefully sunk just off the Cayman Islands to create an artificial reef. Guess what was placed onboard two years later? Image by NoBucksRanch

The neolithic era Horn Head lookout on the Holocene dunes of Ireland gives you a piece of ancient history coupled with a breathtaking view. Around the lookout, geocaches are hidden in several notable areas to teach geocachers the history and geology surrounding the area. Image by NyankoSensei

Are you thirsty for a geocache? The best happy hour is poppin’ bottle caps looking for this log to sign in Myakka River State Park (just don’t actually pull them off).

When you find something far more valuable than any ol’ pot of gold at the end of the rainbow — a smiley!

Much like a rainbow after a perfect storm, the ninety concrete steps in Estepona, Spain, went from just another unremarkable staircase to a bright community fixture over 10 years after their installation. Painted by an unknown member of the city’s parks department, they illustrate the full, visible Newtonian spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) sandwiched between golden handrails. The decoration is fitting, as visitors appear to gaze into the heavens as they stand at the bottom of the staircase. Image by __adra__

Would you climb to the top or admire the view from the landing with the cache?

“You Are Here”

When the geocache tells you where you are AND where it is!

The Möhne is a reservoir in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany. It holds 134.5 million square meters of water at 10 km (6.2 mi) long and 36 m (118 ft) deep. It serves as a European bird sanctuary, providing safe space for around 5,000 waterfowl. Birds aren’t the only creatures that flock to this region — over 700 geocachers have visited this peaceful lake to claim a find on this clever cache.
