Grab a group of friends, family or co-workers and test your Smokies knowledge! If you’re up for the challenge, you’ll be hiking, talking to park rangers, looking for clues and working as a team to answer about 75 questions related to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Tremont. The team with the most points wins a spot on our Hunt Hall o’ Fame plaque and bragging rights for a full year. Additional prizes vary from year to year.
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 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 24th and are due back at Tremont no later than 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 25th with your answers. A light dinner will be served while tallying takes place. This event is limited to 200 participants so register early!
Cost per team:
$50 if registered by Thursday, March 23 at 4 p.m.
$60 Friday, March 24 and Saturday, March 25 registration
Proceeds from the Great Smoky Mountains Scavenger Hunt benefit Tremont programs
