Bear Mountain Treasure Hunt

Thanks for joining the Bear Mountain Treasure Hunt!

What is this?

This is an excuse for you to get on the road on that neglected motorcycle or in that beautiful car, taking in some of the scenic views in and around Bear Mountain.

The rules are simple.

  1. Read the clues (first one on the next page) and try to figure out where the next location is. You can use any tools available to you – google, local knowledge, maps, whatever.
    • If you get stuck there will be a button to give a hint (see bottom of the page for an example). That will show you another clue.
    • If you are still stuck…there will be another button saying “I give up!” Click on that and you will be given the location to drive to.
  2. Once you think you know where you are going, drive to that location and take a good look around. You are looking for an answer to a clue that will give you a password to a web page.
  3. Once you have the password to the web page, click on the link to the next clue, enter the password and you are off again.

The roads in the area are beautiful, and I tried to avoid areas that are super busy and/or frequently closed. But, I can’t guarantee that the areas will not be full, blocked, flooded, impassible, or contain a hoard of zombies. Do this at your own risk!

Scoring is on an honor system, as follows:

  • No hints needed – 3 points
    • One hint needed – 2 points
      • Gave up! – Zero points

Keep track of your score and post a comment here when you have finished it. No cheating!!

The Route

The route is in and around the Bear Mountain, NY area. It’s not that long – about 42 miles of driving. The driving part will only take about 1 1/2 hours but, of course, with the clue hunting, it may take longer. And the places are pretty, so you might just want to hang out for a while.

Don’t have time to do it all in one go? No problem! Just remember where you were and come back to finish it another day.
