And find geocaches along the way! This year, the train will run from Perry Street Station to historicDrake Well, where lunch will be served. But riders will also have the option to continue through the entire length of beautiful Oil Creek State Park, if they desire.

The GeoTrain departs at 1:00 p.m. and returns at 3:45 p.m. on Saturday, August 16, 2014, and the excursion includes lunch and a train ride. Boarding will be at Perry Street Station, 409 S. Perry Street, Titusville, PA 16354. Registration at Perry Street Station will begin at 9:30 a.m.

Please note the revised times above!

FAQs

Will there be new caches? Yes, we are working on some new permanent caches! Their coordinates won't be available until the day of the event, but we'll provide sheets to all attendees.

Can babies ride free? Yes! All "babes in arms" 3 years of age or younger can ride free.

Do drive-in attendees also get lunch? Pre-registered drive-in folks have a nice lunch included in the deal.

Will there be geocoins available? Geocoins are at a separate at-location transaction this year, available to all participants at $12 for the 2014 coin or $10 for geotrain coins from earlier years.

What if I want to ride the train all the way to Rynd Farm? You can do that, however you will not be able to disembark at Drake Well; you will continue on the full ride, with a cold lunch optional. You can also take your bicycle ($5.00 fee applies) and ride it back if you wish.
