Walk, Roll and Discover Scavenger Hunts Three Weekends in August
Looking for fun opportunities to ride and explore Seattle-area trails this month? Join the Walk, Roll, Discover Scavenger Hunts starting this weekend in Kent on the historic Green River Trail.
Participants can win prizes during the Walk, Roll, Discover Scavenger Hunts that Cascade has organized in partnership with King County Parks during the first three weekends in August.
Designed to be fun for kids and the entire family, the free scavenger hunt rides will begin in Kent, Renton and Tukwila over the next three weekends, beginning Aug. 8 and 9. Participants solve clues that lead to hidden treasures, and every participant is eligible for a prize.
People who complete the entire scavenger hunt over the three weekends can enter to win a grand prize or one of a handful of runner-up prizes--all of which will make getting outside more exciting and fun.
Cascade staff members will be on site at the start of all the rides with their masks on, handing out prizes and providing information for people to complete their scavenger hunt and learn about their local trails.
“This is a great chance for people of all ages to get out into the fresh air and explore some of our most iconic trails,” says Maimoona Rahim, Cascade’s Advocacy and Volunteer Coordinator. “We encourage anyone who wants to walk, bike or roll to join in the fun.”
