Your quest will begin at Cochran Mill Park in southwest Fulton County. This Park is located one mile south of the Cochran Mill Nature Center on Cochran Mill Road. As a starting point, look for a green, double gate with two large black and yellow striped reflectors as you turn into the Park. This gate is usually closed to vehicle traffic. BYOI.

Clues:

THROUGH THE IRON GATE
A GRAVEL ROAD WILL CALL,
ITS ALL DOWNHILL
AMID THE PINES SO TALL.

NOT FAR DOWN THIS ROAD
A BRIDGE YOU WILL SEE,
AN EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT
BY JEREMIAH C. LEE.

FROM THE END OF THIS BRIDGE
AFTER CROSSING THE CREEK,
TURN RIGHT UP THE HILL
A PATH YOU DO SEEK.

AFTER FORTY-SEVEN PACES
A HUGE TREE WILL BE SEEN,
A DOUBLE-TRUNKED MONSTER
THAT LOOKS A BIT MEAN.

BUT NO NEED TO FEAR
SUCH A GIANT OF A TREE,
FROM ITS BASE GO NORTHWARD
FIVE PACES AND THREE.

NOW LOOK AROUND CAREFULLY
SIMPLE HEADSTONES ABOUND,
PLEASE PAUSE WITH RESPECT
FOR THOSE ASLEEP IN THE GROUND.

THEN ITS NORTH ELEVEN PACES
MANY FERNS YOU WILL SEE,
ALL REAL BUT ONE
YOU HAVE FOUND R.I.P.
