The Green Mountain Adventure Challenge: two days of trail-hiking, code-cracking, and treasure-hunting in the small towns and verdant forests of Southern Vermont.

The Destination
Vermont's Deerfield Valley has always been a diamond in the rough. Few realize that some of the country's best hiking, biking, kayaking, and other outdoor adventures lie nestled in the mountains here, just three hours from Boston and four hours from New York. But a diamond in the rough is one thing—hidden treasure is a whole other. Here, in the towns of Dover and Wilmington, a rich history awaits discovery, and this year's Green Mountain Adventure Challenge—part unsolved mystery, part outdoor adventure—will serve as your compass. Follow the clues and you just might win the big cash prize.

The Digs
Settle in to your choice of accommodations, courtesy of GreenMountainVermont.com. You'll have 12 properties to pick from, including the 12-room West Dover Inn, built in 1846, and the amenity-rich Big Bears Lodge. Each is situated within striking distance of the treasure and offers breakfast for two in the mornings to help fuel your way to finding the hidden fortune. (Don't worry: The hunt is not a race for first place, and participants have from May 27 to September 5 to decipher the clues and find the booty.)

The Diversions
The Green Mountain Adventure Challenge begins with a story that leads to an initial clue—maybe an old letter or a grainy map—which leads to more clues and eventually treasure. Solve the clues right the first time and you'll spend no more than two days exploring ancient forests, climbing mountain summits, solving mysterious puzzles and codes, and enjoying spectacular Vermont scenery. The clues are hidden in everyday places around town: on a hiking trail, at a bar, on a bridge, or even with the local townfolk. The answers to some of the clues may be obvious while others may leave you stumped and wandering for hours—or days.
