JCTC 2015 Scavenger Hunt

The Jefferson County Trails Council (JCTC) is pleased to announce the first Scavenger Hunt on the Jefferson County Trails System.

The Scavenger Hunt runs from Memorial Day weekend until June 20th (FAIRfest weekend).
Participants will obtain punch cards at AJ’s Bike Shop or on the JCTC website. No entry fee is required to participate. Participants will collect punches at various locations stationed around the trails. Completed punch cards will be returned to AJ’s Bike Shop or mailed to the JCTC.
There will be a drawing for those completing the hunt on the evening of June 20 at FAIRfest.
This project is in partnership with FAIRfest. The event will be advertised in conjunction with FAIRfest. The event will also be advertised to the local media outlets, through the Fairfield Convention and Visitors Bureau, the JCTC Facebook page/website, and Fairfield Park and Rec.
