Had someone ask me today about hiding caches, didn't get his name, but he asked who does one ask for permission to hide a cache along the appalachian trail. I told him I wasn't sure.

I have looked at the maps and there looks to be some great scenic spots to hide a cache. I would be curious for future reference if anyone knows who to ask about this or does one need to?? I have read numerous pages on the geocaching.com web site which says to obtain permission from the landowner or managing agency of the land, but how does one determine who that is??

Thanks for the help.


P.S. He saw my license plate "GEOHIKE" and realized I was a cacher, had that happen a few times lately.
