Florida is not the place I think of when I think of taking a hike. However, a new program, Trek Ten Trails, will bring kids out on hikes to engage them in nature.

Organizers hope to lure children - and their parents - outside in part by introducing them to geocaching, a high-tech form of treasure hunting. Caches will be hidden along each of the hiking routes, and participants will receive "passport journals" in which to document their activities.

Looks like a good combination of hiking and new technology.
