Find 25 adventures-called quests-in the Ohio & Erie Canalway! Put on your sleuthing hat and follow rhyming clues and a curious map to each hidden quest box. Along the way, discover the area's treasures-the natural and cultural gems of the Canalway. The 2012 season runs through Thursday, November 15. Look for the debut of new titles!
Unlike geocaching, no GPS unit is needed and no trinkets are exchanged. When you find a quest box, collect its unique stamp, sign its logbook, and put it back in place for others to discover.
For more information and to download quests, visit www.ohioanderiecanalway.com and search under Activities for the Questing icon. Quests are also available at visitor centers.
