Leprechaun Leap at Ft. Lincoln State Park

Posted: Updated:

The conditions were not the most ideal to be outside, but that didn't stop some people on a quest to find a pot of gold.

It's the second annual Leprechaun Leap out at Ft. Lincoln state park.

Although it was much more spring-like last year at this time, several people still ventured out on the hiking trails to search for clues and gold coins.

Once hikers found the coins, they could bring them back to the Visitor's Center to warm up and hopefully win some prizes.

"Do you want to do it again?" asks Lisa Schorsch to her seven-year-old Sophie. "Yeah." "You want to do it again? Maybe next year!" says Schorsch.

"It's just something fun and different for them to do, you know, it's a scavenger hunt, you know they get to go find the clues and there's prizes at the end." says Maureen Trnka/Park Ranger.

Next month at Ft. Lincoln Park is the April Fool's Day hike-- on April 6th.

Rangers say you need your cameras for that one.
