All Monster logos will be hidden on green circle trails only and there will be only one prize per participant. Registration is open 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. The event goes until all logos are found or 3 p.m., whichever comes first.

On two Thursdays, Jan. 10 and 17, don't miss the Monster Energy DJ Tubing Party.
