The Fairfax County Park Authority has extended its free scavenger hunt, the Snowflake Trail, through Jan. 31. Participants scan QR codes on their smartphones to find video clues while they walk through the forest behind the Cub Run RECenter. Snowflake markers will guide them to each clue, and videos along the way will teach children about the animals in the woods.
The Snowflake Trail starts at a kiosk at the Cub Run RECenter circle. across from the center’s main entrance at 4630 Stonecroft Blvd, in Chantilly. It’s less than a mile long, and RECenter entry passes are not needed to participate. For a video about it, go to https://youtu.be/LSsFFHnMOEs.
