Handicaching ratings   Print  E-mail 
Contributed by Scout  
When you list or find a geocache on, you can rate the terrain from 1-5. In general, a 1 rating is used for caches located in places that are accessible to physically handicapped persons.

Many people underestimate the terrain when rating, leading to misleading ratings. But some cases are hard to rate even after careful consideration. Because physical handicaps vary in severity, it's difficult to come up with a single number that provides all the information needed in special cases. provides a geocache rating system that includes more information to allow individuals to make more informed decisions about whether a particular cache is suitable for them.

I recommend everyone who owns or hunts a geocache on to consider rating the cache using the Handicaching rating system. There's a handy link on the cache details page for every cache listed on I believer this is another first for No other geocache listing site integrates so tightly with cache listings.
