So, adventurers, the clues for this box I placed over the summer have been lost to the ages, but I will attempt to give them from memory. I loved the box my associate and I made this day, and the hike is a lot of fun, if long.
From Catfish Pond, you may want to head North Easterly on the unmarked trail, which will lead you to the Rattlesnake Swamp Trail, which you will also want to travel in a NE direction on (aka. make a left). When that trail is done, go right on the fire road until it leads you to the AT, South. You will come across a large, neat looking landmark with a picnic table in front of it (where we carved the stamp. At the base of the landmark, there is a weird pipe sticking out of the ground. Walk south on the AT for something like thirty paces (this is where it all gets fuzzy). There may just be a large log to your left, with three small trees making a triangle directly behind it. Behind those three trees might be another fallen tree, perpendicular to the log, which has fallen directly between two other trees. Where that fallen tree connects to the two trees it is separating, there may just be a rock, obscuring what you might be looking for. Who knows?
It has taken me awhile, but my hope is that the box is still in good shape, as likely no one has opened it since it was planted. Use a stick for sure, when moving the rock, as there are lots of snakes. We also saw many bears when planting, so keep your eyes peeled.
When you're done, you can continue down the AT, either until it meets with the Rattlesnake Swamp Trail again, or until it meets with the road back to Catfish Pond.
Let me know if you find it. I worry about that box sometimes...
