The Lowell Riddler is hiding medallions in the City of Lowell and offering area residents the chance to win a prize of local gift cards. Look for a new clue or riddle each Saturday!
From Mark Weaver, who solved the 17th riddle: “Where wanderers now consort” seemed to suggest North Country Trail, but that’s as far as Clue #1 got me. Clue #2 cemented the Trail Headquarters with “trail-ers” and the “short drive” behind. I checked out three bollards and found nothing, then I found a FOURTH and there it was!”
Here’s what else The Lowell Riddler sent us when announcing the winner and the answers behind the riddle:
Mark Weaver from Lowell!
His prize package contains Lowell Bucks sponsored by Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce, and a gift card sponsored by Sweet Seasons!
