Hi All - I do a fair amount of light hiking trips for an experienced novice, day trips and a few short weekenders. My son is 8 and involved in cub scouts so he's been introduced to hiking from an early age. To help maintain his interest in the outdoors, I've introduced him to geocaching which, until recently, he has affectionately referred to "treasure hunting".

Recently, I've assumed a leadership role in his cub scout pack and introduced geocaching to all the boys (60+) and it has taken off in popularity. It appears that my goal of giving the boys more impetus to hit the trails has been achieved - but it also got me thinking...where does the hiking community land on geocaching? Technically speaking, it is littering. So I thought I would pose the question here to get some feedback.
