Hidden Philmont Treasures

Jane Jacobs Walk to Find the Hidden Philmont Treasures Hunt / Philmont Community Day

Participants will be given a list of Philmont’s hidden treasure hunt clues – of which the answers will be based purely on observation skills during the walk. There will be up to 20 clues provided.

The Jane Jacobs Walk to Find Philmont’s Hidden Treasures Walk will gently amble through the Village Green, visiting the historic Tea House, walk the Philmont Labyrinth, then head up Maple Avenue which is full of historic 19th century homes, down Prospect St. towards the Harder Mansion, up Main St, turn right on Elm St and continue up to the Summit Mill and Summit Lake. The walk will continue along Lake Drive, down Ark St, turn right onto Main St. and continue up to the Vanderbilt House to end the walk – where refreshments and conversation can be enjoyed sitting on the outside dining deck overlooking the Summit Lake.

For those of us who are more energetic – the walk can continue by circling back down the Main St. to visit the Columbia Land Conservancy High Falls nature trails.

There will be a cap of 25 for the Jane Jacobs Walk to Find the Hidden Philmont Treasures Hunt on Philmont Community Day. No cap for participants for the treasure hunt component. This component does not require the participant to join in the walk and can be self directed.
