At Estero Bay Preserve State Park, there are numerous geocaches that can be found by exploring the West Broadway Trailhead. There are 12 miles of trails, each taking you through the beautiful pine and scrub flatwood environments of the park. The trails can be accessed via hiking, biking or walking.

The best thing about geocaching is that it gives you an opportunity to explore the park in a new way. Perhaps you’ll get to see parts of the park that you never would have seen before. Geocaching is also a great way to exercise, especially if you choose to challenge yourself with some of the harder to find caches. And you can’t forget about all of the interesting flora and fauna that you will encounter along the way. Estero Bay has an array of native plants and animals that call the park home.

After you’ve found all your treasure, travel back to the picnic pavilion located at the front of the park. Relax in the shade and simply enjoy the beautiful landscape before you.
