The Ultimate AsheCache Program

The 2008 version of the Ultimate AsheCache adventure program has already ended. The program united the principles of geocaching with the excitement of a treasure hunt for visitors staying in participating area accommodations. Ultimate AsheCache presented the perfect way to explore the area as you visit numerous spots to find clues for the coordinates of the final treasure.

Each Tuesday, the caches were replenished with incredible treasures from area partners. Five themed caches - culinary, arts, shopping, couples/romance and outdoor-inspired - ensured that no matter what your interest, you could find something incredible to write home about, from incredible pieces of art to culinary tours to incredible outdoor gear.
