Carlisle Quest is a walking puzzle consisting of nine independent challenges, all located within the boundaries of Carlisle. Each challenge begins at Veterans Park, on the corner of High and Hanover Streets, and is designed to highlight specific qualities of the Borough. All challenges are within approximately 1.5 walking miles of Veterans Park.
The challenges require only a pencil or crayon and piece of paper – and the participant's mind and feet. By following the clues, players will find a 4" x 4" square of Lucite (a very hard plastic) with an engraved surface; this is the physical goal for each route. The player holds paper on the square and rubs its surface with a pencil or crayon which captures the engraved image. Part of a larger picture will be captured at each goal. All nine rubbings can be joined to form a single picture that is suitable for framing.
