Creating a route

Got a long journey coming up and fancy some caching along the way? Want to grab all the caches on your route into work? What you need to do is to create a Pocket Query along a route and here is how.

Step 1

Find Caches Along a RouteFirst step, visit and click on Find Caches Along a Route

(Click on the image to increase the size)


Step 2

Create a RouteClick on ‘Create a route’



Step 3

Add locations Choose your starting and finishing locations, I always add ‘UK’ after my place names as the Geocacaching website is very much US orientated.

Step 4

DescriptioGive your route a suitable name and description. You can choose to have your route be found by others, so you want it to be as desciptive as possible.


Step 5

Create PQNow its time to create your PQ ( so click on the Create a PQ link


Final Step

RadiusAlmost there! Create the PQ in the normal way but this time there is a slight change. Change the radius setting to essentially how far off your route would like to travel. I have 0.5 miles sent, that is, I will be happy to look for a cache half a mile from my main route to work, on either side.

Thats all there is to it!


I have been geocaching since Feb 2012 having lots of fun discovering new places that I may otherwise have missed.
