Popular Hatfield and McCoy geocaching event returns to Pike County on Friday

PIKEVILLE, Ky. — Labor Day weekend will mark the 2nd Annual Hatfield and McCoy GeoTrail Event in Pike County and neighboring West Virginia.

This commemoration of the historic feud and all things geocaching starts Friday evening, Aug. 30, with the popular Stolen Pig Roast. Interest in the Hatfield and McCoy feud has significantly increased over the last two years, in large part due to the popular miniseries by the History Channel.  Last year, geocachers from several states descended on eastern Kentucky and West Virginia to take part in this unique event.

More events and festivities are scheduled this year. Also, a limited-edition Geo-coin for 2013 will be available. All of the caches along the trail are designed to be family friendly, and finders of all ages and experience levels are invited to come out for the event. This is a great opportunity to learn more about geocaching and see some historic sites of the infamous Hatfield and McCoy feud.
