Short easy walk that is kid and pet friendly.

After a short break at the Mystery Machine, Fred came up with a plan.

“I think I know how to solve this mystery but we will need to split up.”

“No way man!” said Shaggy, “ruh roh” agreed Scooby.

“Would you do it for a Scooby snack?” asked Velma

Falling over themselves for Scooby snacks, Scooby and Shaggy quickly agreed to go with you to find the monsters while Fred, Daphne and Velma set up a trap.

Heading out in your yellow Volkswagen beetle you head back up Wolf Shoals road and make a left on Henderson Road and then another left on Old Yates Ford road. Just before crossing the river you reach Bull Run Marina and you pull into the parking lot on the left off the road.

Parking on the far right of the lot you coax Scooby and Shaggy out off your car and down the paved trail. Tiptoeing past the haunted bathrooms you head down the hill and soon find your self back on the Bull Run trail. Continuing on you soon reach the water where you make a left by the conservation sign.

With the promise of more Scooby snacks if you find the monsters the three of you head along the trail and up the hill past the 2 in 1 tree on the left. As you cautiously make your way down the steep hill you find yourself at a stream, which you cross quietly in case the monsters hear you. Turning left you cross the stream again and head along the red/pink horse trail.

Knowing that the monsters must be close Shaggy and Scooby cower behind you as you pass a large pile of logs and stop at a small boulder on the left off the trail. Pulling out your compass you head up the hill at 25 degrees leaving the other two cowering on the trail. You quickly come to a large oak tree with a smaller beech on its right. Looking under the downed tree behind the beech you find Redbeard the pirate.

As you stamp in Scooby and Shaggy run screaming down the trail with Redbeard the pirate in hot pursuit! You quickly pack up and head along the trail to try and save your scared friends. As you find yourself heading uphill you notice the trail turning left. At the top you see Scooby and shaggy in the distance and you run to assist them. You catch up with them hiding in a large spooky stump about 18 steps off the left hand side off the trail. You try to call out and warn them but its to late, they have inadvertently found the hiding spot for Robotman!

With the chase on you soon find yourself being chased by the two monsters up the trail. It doesn't help that Shaggy and Scooby are now hiding in your backpack and they keep covering your eyes! You’re not sure if that's a building ahead off you but you head for it anyway... Yikes you suddenly find yourself trapped in a net!

"Got you!" says Fred as he emerges from his hiding spot.

"Oh no!" says Daphne, "I think we trapped the wrong monsters..."

Letting you down from the trap the gang is reunited again but still nowhere close to solving this mystery .They head back to the Mystery machine by going past the brick building and going down the short hill to the parking lot.
