Quest Books

Each year we publish clues for 15 to 20 trails throughout the South Shore. The book includes:

  • maps with directions to get to the trails
  • a set of clues for each trail
  • fun facts to learn throughout the quest
  • pages to stamp when you finish the quests

The list of where to purchase your book for $5.00 appears on each page.

We have put quests online for you to try. These quests are not in the book, but may still be included in your patch count!
