This Letterbox is in Steep Rock Park in Washington CT.

This is a great park with alot of features including a pedestrian suspension bridge, rail trails with a tunnel, trails up hill to spectacular views and a great deal of wild life. We saw deer, turkeys a ferret or marten type crittter.

There are a number of places to park depending on your preference. If you are not averse to driving down narrow bumpy dirt roads you can drive closer to the letterbox-cache.

To find this letterbox you need to locate the train tunnel first. The train tunnel is approximately one mile south from the gate on the east side of the river. The former railroad trail becomes very visible as you travel southward on the road by the river. Simply continue to follow the rail road trail.

Then once at the tunnel, walking from the train tunnel North bound you will come to a four way intersection of trails about 300 to four hundred feet from the tunnel entrance.

You want to take the trail to the right going south east.

The trail to the left will take to to the dirt road by the river.

Walk approximately 300 feet up that trail and to the left is a large mutant pine tree with 7 or more tree trunks. The letterbox is in the base of that tree covered with sheets of tree bark.

Note that this is also a geocache trade station so if you take any geocache travel bugs please move them to another geocache location and register the transfer on the geocaching web site. Thank you.
