Questing

Do you like adventures, solving riddles and hidden treasure? If so, questing is for you!
 
Each April 15 to November 15, search for more than 35 hidden treasure boxes along the Ohio & Erie Canalway. Follow rhyming clues and curious maps, and along the way discover natural and cultural gems.
 
To participate, find a quest box, sign your name in the log book and collect an impression of the unique quest stamp. Unlike geocaching, no GPS unit is needed, and you don’t take or add items to the quest box.
 
For more information and to download the quests, visit ohioanderiecanalway.com. Printed quests are also available in select agency visitors centers, including ours at F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm.
 
To find which quests are closest to you, visit this page at ohioanderiecanalway.com.
 
Make your own unique stamp during free programs offered in Summit Metro Parks (fall 2014) and Cuyahoga Valley National Park (summer 2014).
 
The Canalway Quests program is a partnership between Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Cleveland Metroparks, Cascade Locks Park Association, Stark Parks, the Ohio & Erie Canalway Association and Summit Metro Parks.
