The "Ziggy Gifts" letterbox is hidden in Pedernales State Park, in the Texas Hill Country. THis is a beutiful park, with great views and recreational activies. Plus multiple letterboxes!!
From Austin, go west on Hwy 290. Turn right on FM 3242 for 6 miles, then follow signs into the park. Drive to the main waterfall parking area.
To the Letterbox:
(It seems this box has become very hard to find. I will try to get up there soon and see if I can locate again, then update clues).
Walk to the overlook, the find the same sign as the other boxes start with. Go on trail to the right (if coming up from overlook, to the "No Trespassing" sign. Now count roughly 330 steps as you follow the "Trail" (gets confusing as to what the actual trail is some times. You should keep going roughtly straight, and sometimes a little to the right). You should end up at a trail juction, with the right fork going down toward the water (should be sandy). You want to stay straight, counting 11 more steps. The trail forks again. Take the left most trail (going at 240 degrees) and count 14 steps. Now go South at 180 degrees up the hill on the rock path for 20 steps. Turn left (east) at 100 degrees and go 9 steps on a faint path. Now walk 15 steps at 70 degrees to a hollowed out tree. Box is in the hollow, about 2 feet off the ground.
