Hiking with a twist, a rhyming adventure, an outdoor treasure hunt—all these describe “Quests” now available to encourage you to have fun outdoors and learn a little bit about the history of the Ohio & Erie Canal and Stark County.
Unlike geocaching, no GPS unit is needed and no trinkets are exchanged. When you find a quest box, collect its unique stamp, sign its logbook, and put it back in place for others to discover.
