The Green Mountain Adventure Challenge is an epic real life action-adventure game that is part unsolved mystery and part outdoor adventure.
It begins with a story that leads to a set of clues - maybe an old letter or a grainy map -
which lead to more clues, the end of the story and possibly... cash.
Solve the clues right the first time and you'll spend no more than 2 days exploring ancient forests,
climbing mountain summits, solving mysterious codes and enjoying spectacular Vermont scenery.
Challenge takes place 20 miles from the campground.
