Smokies Scavenger Hunt This Weekend

Gather your friends, family or co-workers and create a team for the 4th annual Great Smoky Mountains Scavenger Hunt! The hunt ranges over most of the park, using roads and official trails to access particular areas. Some questions require research to answer. As it is illegal to remove items from the park, one digital camera with a flash memory card will be required per team. Questions are awarded point values based on level of difficulty. The team with the most points may get prizes, but everybody wins! You can have as many people on your team as you like, provided all fit into one vehicle.

The event will take place over a 24-hour period with teams receiving their hunt questions via e-mail by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 2 and are due back at Tremont no later than 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 3 with your answers. A light dinner will be served while tallying takes place. Advance registration required. This event is limited to 200 participants so register early! Cost per team: $50
