Medallion Hunt

Medallion Hunt Rules
  1. The medallion will be hidden on Chanhassen City-owned park or park preserve. These spaces are open to the public from 6am-10pm.
  2. Search but do not destroy or damage any property. The City of Chanhassen reserves the right to terminate the hunt if the property becomes damaged. The medallion will not be hidden underground; nor will it be hidden at a height requiring special equipment to find it. A shovel may be useful if it is buried in the snow, but a metal detector is useless as the medallion is acrylic.
  3. The Chanhassen Library has resources that may help you solve some of the clues.
  4. The medallion must be found and the prize claimed by 4:30 pm on Monday, February 12 at Chanhassen City Hall.
  5. Employees of the City of Chanhassen and immediate family members are not eligible to win.

It’s time to get a few more details,

To find me you have to go off the trails.
