Champion trees on public land where geocaching is permitted can make great EarthCaches — caches in which a natural feature of the land is the sought-after cache. Here are the coordinates of just a few of the majestic state and national champion trees out there on public land. Get your feet wet by searching for the Darlington oak at the Maymount Estate in Virginia, or go for a
challenge and search for a champion white fir, located somewhere within the 2,000-plus square-mile Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest or the limber pine, perched at 9,660 feet above sea level.
