Overview

Hidden deep among Vermont's mystical Green Mountains is a secret world of challenging adventures, fantastic stories, and real cash fortunes hiding in plain sight. Only those who attempt the Challenge will know where to look. Along your epic real-life action adventure journey, you will explore ancient Vermont towns, hike magical mountains, and encounter a series of mind-bending puzzles - all in a quest to unravel the story and discover the unknown ​ This is a real challenge: there is no guarantee you will solve it. The Adventure changes each summer and typically takes 2-3 days. You can begin any day and take as long as you need during Adventure season (Memorial Day - Labor Day) to complete it.

This is the third year we have attempted and completed the Green Mountain Adventure Challenge. This year they have added a final cash level that we are still working on. This year's challenge is more mental than physical in my opinion, although hiking up Stratton...More
