Orienteering and Geocaching at Hickory Run State Park
The three permanent orienteering courses in the park are a joint venture of the Delaware Valley Orienteering Association and the Pocono Orienteering Club. The beginner course in the Sand Spring Day Use Area takes at least an hour to complete. An advanced course begins near the Saylorsville Dam and takes about four hours to complete.
Detailed maps are available at the visitor center.
In this high tech treasure hunting game, Geocaching.com lists hidden containers called geocaches that players using GPS devices locate outdoors. Park staff and individuals have placed many caches in the park. Brochures on several educational caches developed by the park are available at the visitor center. Geocachers interested in placing a new cache within the park must contact the visitor center.
