Stop in at the visitor center and pick up a scavenger hunt before heading out to walk the trails at Five Rivers. Visitors are encouraged to bring their imagination and observation skills, because the scavenger hunt is not about collecting things. Instead, it's all aboutcompleting a list of activities, from gazing at clouds, to touching the earth, to taking a closer look at insects.

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.
