We think the Butler County Donut Trail GeoTour is pretty sweet, and you probably will too. The tour itself is themed around donuts and creative geocaches to satisfy your sweet tooth for adventure all year ‘round. Find all 15 geocaches to earn the official Donut Trail geocoin!
Great geocaches on the GeoTour:
One More Donut Shop – GC6P6WX
Small in size, but it will leave a big impression. One More Donut Shop is a fun unique hide that took some time to craft.
An Infinite Number of Donuts – GC6PFHB
Painted in July, 2016, this mural, entitled “Make Way for McCloskey” pays tribute to Hamilton native, Robert McCloskey. Of course one of the themes on the 20 ft tall and 100 ft wide mural is donuts.
Local Legend – GC70WWJ
The title says it all, the German bakery is a staple in the area for locals. Now, it hosts a fun Multi-Cache for hungry geocachers.

One more thing:
If you want to complete both the regular Donut Trail for the t-shirt and the GeoTour version for the coin, you will need a early start. All caches are publicly accessible seven days a week. However, stamps required for the regular Donut Trail passport (t-shirt) are only available inside the stores. The donut shops close early when they sell out, so please plan ahead. Some are also closed on Sundays, Mondays, or on holidays.
Logs from cachers:
We were so excited to be wrapping this Butler County Donut GeoTour up in one day! This final was a tweet ending! We love these types of caches and had an absolute blast today. – Befive05
The geocache alone is worth a favorite point but I’d also give one for the entire experience. I must say that this is probably the best set up that I have done for a Geo trail. – train1904
This was a fun series and we LOVE our coin. TFTF series! – GLC
