Event Description
Green Mountain Adventure Challenge


The Green Mountain Adventure Challenge is an epic real-world action adventure quest. Uncover the legend of a secret world hiding in plain sight among Vermont's mystical Green Mountains while solving a labyrinth of mysterious clues and mind-bending puzzles. You will explore ancient mountain valleys, reveal historical tales, and experience true adventures. Each person you encounter, every sign you see, might be the key to unlocking the next step of your journey.

This is a real challenge based in real history complete with real world outcomes if you succeed. There is no guarantee you will solve it. Once you begin, you can take as much time as you need to complete it; it is not a race. The average time is 2-3 days.

Adventure season is open May 1 - October 31. You can register today, then begin the adventure any day during the season. Return as often as you need to complete it.

The adventure takes places in Dover, Vermont and surrounding towns.

Some places feel as if they were created with a purposeful, secret design waiting to be revealed. Vermont's Green Mountains are such a place. Its gorgeous mountain valleys formed by the ice age thousands of years ago are sprinkled with seemingly simple small towns that hold surprisingly sophisticated and mysterious designs. A spirit of wonder is in the air.​

But who designed them to be this way? It is just myth or is it real? There is an important balance to be struck between natural-made wonder and our human-made additions. Our collective legacy lives on in the history, the buildings, the art, and the people who keep the stories alive. So, who were the architects? What were their motivations? And which of their secrets live on in today's modern world?

Recently, an old newspaper was found in a hidden compartment of an antique chest. Its bizarre puzzles and strange messages allude to the legend of a once powerful secret society that took root in these mountains centuries ago. That is where your journey begins.

Get ready to explore Vermont's mountains, valleys, and towns to uncover connections to the past and reveal this region’s more modern secrets that might still be alive today. While some parts of the journey are hidden in plain sight, others are buried beneath layers of riddles, clues, misleading rumors, and mind-bending puzzles. Seek the answers and peek behind the curtain of the myths and legends of the mystical Green Mountains...

​Passes available starting at $75 or Getaway Packages available starting at $449 for 2 nights for 2 people.
