This year marks the 7th Annual Scavenger Hunt on the Jefferson County Trails system. This year’s theme is “history”. Clues include a nod to years gone by, with the intent of spurring participant’s curiosity. This event is a great way to get out and see all the trails Fairfield and Jefferson County have to offer. This year’s hunt returns to the traditional format with orange punches hidden in various locations around the Fairfield trail and park system. The Jefferson County Trails Council asks participants to maintain social distancing recommendations when hunting.
Participants can pick up scavenger hunt punch cards at The Ride: Bike Sales and Service (123 North Court Street), trailhead kiosks, Fairfield Recreation Center, and MUM Recreation Center. Completed punch cards should be returned to The Ride: Bike Sales and Service or mailed to the Jefferson County Trails Council (P.O. Box 2375 Fairfield, IA 52556).
