Every geocache has a difficulty (D) rating and a terrain (T) rating on a five point scale known as a D/T rating. To increase your chances of finding a geocache, look for one with a low difficulty and terrain rating.
DIFFICULTY - Effort needed to solve and find the geocache and logbook.
TERRAIN - Physical effort needed to arrive at the geocache coordinates
Ratings vary from one community to the next. A 3-star terrain in Perth, Scotland, is a different experience than a 3-star terrain in Amsterdam, Holland. Please rate your cache accurately based on standards in your area and guidance in the table below.
