The Great Smoky Mountains Scavenger Hunt

Now's the time to gather your friends, family and co-workers together to create a team for the annual Great Smoky Mountains Scavenger Hunt! This year's event will take place on the weekend of March 20th and 21st.

The hunt, organized by the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont, ranges over most of the park, and uses 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 safely into one vehicle. The event will take place over a 25-hour period with teams receiving their hunt questions via e-mail by 3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 20th and are due back at Tremont no later than 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 21st with your answers. A light dinner will be served while tallying takes place. This event is limited to 200 participants so register early!

The cost per team is $50 if registered by Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 4 p.m. Afterwards the cost becomes $60. For more information, please click here.
