These are fairly easy finds. About an hour walk, at the most. We did one big circle. We chose Tribble Mill Park because we go there all the time. It has a 3.5 mile all purpose paved trail and many “natural” trails. There is always someone biking, walking, running, roller blading, fishing, etc etc. My 7 year old daughter carved the stamps and did a great job with very little “clean up” from mom. I think you will understand her choice of images when you see them.
To begin your trip, find the playground and park in its parking lot. Take the paved trail past the restrooms and playground. Go all the way down to the lake. Turn left and continue. You come to a split in the trail, you want to stay right. To your right you should see a footpath to a wooden bridge. Take that path across the bridge.
#1 Roll On
Once over the bridge take a right. The path forks but keep going to the right. The path veers left away from the lake and then horseshoes back to the right. In the middle of the horseshoe you will see two trees opposite each other with the path in between. The one on the right is in the beginning of a gully. Stand on the path in between these two trees. Look at 330 degrees into the woods. Take about 22 “mom” steps to a hollowed out stump. There lies the box under a bunch of leaves, sticks and bark.
PLEASE REHIDE BETTER THAN FOUND!
#2 Running Shoes
Return to the path and continue on it the same direction you were going. There are several good looking fishing spots along this path. You will eventually walk past a pavilion, fishing pier and restrooms. Follow the trail up the hill, passing the bathrooms with them on your right, to the clearing/ gravel parking lot to the left. Walk diagonally across this clearing. At the opposite end you will find 2 posts marking the entrance back to the trail. You will come to the paved trail. Take a seat and rest on the first bench you come to. While sitting, look at about 55 degrees. Walk this direction about 22 “mom” sized steps to a hollow stump filled with leaves, sticks and the box. PLEASE REHIDE BETTER THAN FOUND!
#3 Two Wheeler
Continue down the paved path. Between the 4th and 5th bench there is a drainage gully on the right and left. You should see a small footpath going uphill just beyond the gully. Walk that path until you see the proverbial V shaped tree on the left. Go to the other side of the tree and lean against it. At 20 degrees you should see a fallen tree. Walk there and climb over the trunk. Turn back towards the V tree. Where the trunk meets the stump you should be able to dig and find the box. PLEASE REHIDE BETTER THAN FOUND!
Go back down to the paved path and continue on the same direction. You will cross a bridge and come back out at the playground parking lot.
NOTE: Always take adequate precautions (such as prodding with a stick and/or wearing gloves) before reaching into dark crevices and holes in the wild.
