This mammoth is hiding within walking distance from the first cache I ever found!

It's a pretty quiet area but we like to bring our pup to stretch his legs and chase his ball around!

There is a large rock that the Mammoth is taking shelter by and is covered up with leaf litter and pine needles!

Andy Mammoth is hiding along the bike path in Rapid City. He is playing hide-n-seek. Andy Mammoth is very silly and doesn't want to be found! A skilled geocacher will find him and snag him. If you find him in the container snag and log him. If you find the container empty, he has been snagged. Only a geocacher looking for him will snag him. Good luck!

SW 9th St, Moore, OK, US

Typical Hide for this type of Host, Good Luck and Happy Hunting! (Under)

CENTRAL PARK Central Park is unlike any other park in the City of Moore. Conveniently located at the intersection of Broadway and 4th Street, Central Park is adjacent to the railroad tracks. The city’s rich history with the railroad is reflected throughout the park. From the stunning architecture and design of The Station at Central Park Recreation Center, to the train-themed playground and aquatic center, railroad elements can be seen across the 51-acre park.

The Station’s grand archways mirror the design of train station’s old and new. Look closely at the pavement in front of the recreation center and notice the striped concrete resembles railroad tracks.

A replica locomotive, donated by Dental Depot, greets visitors to the park. The half-scale train engine is perfectly crafted to resemble a locomotive from the late-1800s when the City of Moore was settled.

The land on which the park was built has sat empty since Moore was founded approximately 150 years ago. The city purchased the land from the family of Dr. Curtis Berry at a deeply discounted price. The family believed in the vision for the park and wanted the land to be used for such a great community purpose. Thus, the official name of the park is Dr. Curtis Berry - Central Park.

The City of Moore would like to thank its generous citizens who approved the construction of Central Park in a 2012 bond election. Your commitment to making our city a great place to live, work, and play is not only appreciated, it’s evident in every aspect of this beautiful, innovative community space!

Welcome to the home of Visit Conroe and the Conroe GeoTour, GT8D home base! This mammoth is protecting the outdoor area near the office. No need to come inside, this mammoth is hiding near the grassy plains most resembling its natural urban habitat. He sucked in and held his breath as long as he could to squeeze into his protective coffin like box to slide into his hidey-hole.

We hope you take some time to do more than just snag the tag. We have hundreds of great caches around and 2 adventure labs to enjoy.


cron publish 2 months 2 weeks ago 775 - The Cullinan Mammoth Hide-and-Seek

S Texas 6, Sugar Land, TX, US

Who knew mammoths liked to play hide-and-seek! Being HUGE, they need special hiding spots, like under the bed, in the laundry hamper, under the stairs...you know, the usual spots. No hiding in the closet though. They're scared of the dark.

To find the Cullinan Mammoth, look in the usual spot at the pinned location. Then grab the Tag and "bolt"...you don't want to get caught by any of the many Muggles (or spiders) lurking in the area. If you're up for a hike, check out the trails in the park. Aside from the trees and flowers, you can find waterfowl, leaf cutter ants, rabbits, and the occasional deer or feral hog roaming around.

Happy Hunting!

cron publish 2 months 2 weeks ago 691 - Trampalina- A tiny mammoth story

Rock Rd E, Dunellen, NJ, US

Trampalina, and her twin sister, Stampalina, were considered free-range roaming woolly mammoths that moved across the lands now known as Dunellen, Warren and Watchung. Their father, Squash-A-Maximus, lived a more tranquil life between two adjacent lakes. At the time, hunters were killing these types animals for the meat, tusks, and fur, but the local farmers chose not to hunt them, but allowed them live free. Each year once winter had passed, the farmers were able to shave the woolly mammoths and trade their fur with the Scottish, who used it to make pre-modern kilts. The problem was the heat and itch factor the fur caused and thus the woolly mammoth kilts were no longer desirable. Trampalina’s death was one of great struggle and she did not take this laying down. She fought against the foreign hunters with her massive tusks and uprooted many trees during her battle. The hunters tried to drive her to the cliff’s edge, but she ran back trampling over anyone in her way. Finally, with a mighty roar, a hoarse barking noise and last moaning gasp, she succumbed to the hunter’s weapons. It’s said in local folklore that if you walk her last path from the drop-off to her final resting place, you can hear the mighty roar and feel the ground shake.

Her twin sister and father. Stampalina was very whimsical and like to play on the mountains. After a good hard rain she would sit on her rump and slide down the mountainside riding the mud to the bottom. The local farmers were always amazed to see this giant animal play and many families braved rainstorms to watch. The mud would completely cover her and she would get up and stomp her way back to the top.
It was one of these playful rides in the mud that was her undoing. On a particularly stormy night she stomped her way to the top, loosing the earth with each tremendous step. Her very first ride carved out a path and created massive mudslide. Resting in a pool of flooding rain water, the muddy avalanche over took Stampaline and buried her. Since then the rain has forged out a new path, but left her burial site untouched. Squash-A-Maximus just disappeared one night. Many scholars of the time concluded he migrated to what is now known as Quebec. However storywriters and bards of the time began telling stories of the great friendly woolly mammoth that disappeared into the lake and to this day his shadowy spirit still roams free.

cron publish 2 months 2 weeks ago 730 - Blair County's "Mammoth Cave!"

Kettle Rd, Tyrone, PA, US

It's not quite Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, but it's still a wonderful underground natural treasure! Tytoona Cave gets its name from being roughly equidistant between Altoona, PA and Tyrone, PA. The cave is a nature preserve that is managed by the National Speleological Society (NSS). The cave is approximately 4000 feet long, though only about a 1/4 of it can be explored by foot. Tytoona is not only home to various formations, but biodiversity that ranges from bats, salamanders, crickets, spiders, and other organisms. One unique resident is a rare type of Sculpin fish that has been researched by scientists at Penn State University, the University of Buffalo, and elsewhere.

Should you desire to explore the cave, please follow the regulations found within the kiosk. A good rule of thumb is the caver's creed:

Leave nothing but footprints
Take nothing but photos
Kill nothing but time

The hide is a very typical geocaching hide; you may also park here as well.

Please note that the area is open to the public, but only after 6am and before 9pm!


cron publish 2 months 2 weeks ago 545 - Brush Run Mammoth

US-220 BUS, Altoona, PA, US

This is just a simple GR-type hide (the Mammoth is magnetic, after all) adjacent to a seldom-used gravel parking area across Brush Run from a shopping plaza (the parking on the other side of the Run is more frequented, but this side should be pretty quiet for a quick park and find).

Also nearby is an official geocache placement, GC2D53N, if you have yet to log it, on the same side of Brush run, but in the other seldom-used lot across from the entrance drive.

If you are having trouble locating this mammoth, he is to the left side of the tree that is growing next to the GR (if facing Brush Run), and just inside the metal pole there that is holding up the GR at that spot.

Coordinates are averaged from a few readings, but it was overcast the day of hiding.

Happy hunting!

A nice leisurely stroll along a fabulous sub-urban trail. You can park at the suggested coordinates in a small lot, there are also a few spots along the road, be careful of no parking signs.

The tag is at the base of a lamp post along the trail, I won't tell you which one, but you will see a MOD (Mammoth on Da'Trail) sitcker on the post.

Enjoy your walk and please claim as soon as possible!

Two days ago, I was working at home when I received 2 separate text messages about a Wooly Mammoth in Mt. Morris! How did I not hear the trumpet blast?! Sure enough, had missed all mention of this, as I was getting ready for my first day of working at home.

Yesterday, we got up, got dressed, and waited. NOTHING! CRAP!

Today, I heard it! The wife said GO! And so off I went! I knew the area and was glad that the local police were NOT sitting here today - it is one of their favorite spots to catch the speeders. Parked and headed out. Phone GPS took me to the flag in the middle. Looked around it and the giant star. NOPE. Wandered out and then back to same spot. Returned to vehicle, got out GPS, input coordinates and followed that to a spot about 20 feet away. Then, something clicked and I checked the small standing monuments to each war. CLINK! Wait, where did it go?! THERE! It blew a gentle trumpet at me as I picked it up off the ground! Texted the wife and headed back home!

GREAT WAY TO START THE DAY!

Think I know the hider, too! ;)
