FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The sport of geocaching is coming to the Kentucky State Parks system.

A GeoTour at all 49 state parks will start on Sept. 27, which is National Public Lands Day.

The event will allow participants to explore the parks. Geocaching is a real-world outdoor treasure-hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then try to find the geocache hidden at that location.

State parks officials say the GeoTour features 49 new geocaches. The caches for the tour will be in place for one year. The cache containers each have trade items for those who find them. Parks officials say some of the caches will have prizes, including certificates for free lodging, camping or museums.
