How it Works

The hunt kicks-off June 15, 2024! Puzzles will be available to download and print by going to

With a group of friends or family, solve the puzzles at your own pace. Enter the puzzle answers on Each individual puzzle will lead you to a park in Fairfax County where you will find a clue. When you get to the park, look for a sign with bold letters/numbers on it (sample below). These are clues for the final puzzles. The signs will not be hidden or buried and are on public land within Fairfax County. You will not need to damage anything to find them. Write down the clue you need and leave the signs for future solvers. Put together the clues found at each location and figure out the final answer. Submit the final answer for a chance to win a prize!
