Do you need to press the reset/refresh button?  Have you spent too much time behind a screen these days? We have a solution! Take our challenge – Quest to Refresh! Complete five or more Quests by November 1 (extended to Nov. 15th) and receive a unique Quest to Refresh patch plus an entry into our grand prize drawing at the end of the year.

There are over 160 Quests to choose from. You can search for them on our website by location, features, difficulty, and terrain. Print out the clues or download them on your phone. Pack a picnic, grab your binoculars and maybe a swimsuit, and off you go! Have fun learning about local culture and natural history and reconnecting to this amazing place we call the Upper Valley!  

The first step is to register your team here.

And once you reach the end of each Quest? Sign the log book and put a stamp in your Quest record. If you are uncomfortable with handling the treasure boxes at this time, you could instead, take a photo of the box in its location (and of the view!), perhaps including yourself and any companions. Post photos on social media – we would love to see them! And add these tags: @vitalcommunities, #valleyquest, #uppervalley.  (Note: Not all of the boxes made it out this year.) 

The last step is to record your five Quests by filling out this form and submitting it to us so we can send you your patch(es) and enter you in our drawing. You can also print this Record Sheet to keep track of which Quests you have done. 

Enjoy your time Questing and taking on the Quest to Refresh Challenge.  See you on the trail (from a socially safe distance)!
