Location: Cascade Park in Bangor, Maine (Penobscot County)

The Clues:

Cascade Park is a small, scenic area just North of downtown Bangor. The frequent site of various festivals and a favorite spot for picnics, Cascade Park is named for an artificial waterfall and fountain that run during the summer time. The falls and stream are fun for watching or floating small sticks (rescued before you leave of course). Well-surfaced trails give access to beautiful views of the Penobscot River and the old Waterworks

Getting There: From Route 95, take exit 46 (Hammond Street, Route 2 and 100) and go East towards Bangor on Hammond Street. Continue to follow Hammond Street for about one and a half miles until Hammond turns into State Street. Continue Northeast on State Street for another one and a half miles and look for the Park on the left side of the street just beyond the Eastern Maine Medical Center.

The Letterbox: From the parking lot, go to the gate on the Northeast corner of the parking lot. You will see a gravel path going up the hill on a compass bearing of about 20 degrees. Follow this path for a short distance (12 paces or so) and take the first gravel path going to the left. This path is on a compass bearing of 300 degrees. Follow the path up the hill until you reach the intersection with the other gravel path coming up the hill. Continue 5 paces beyond the intersection and take a grass path going to the left on a compass bearing of 330 degrees. Go up the grass trail for about 30 paces and stop. Look for a fairly large (12 inch diameter at the base) Scotch Pine off to the left of the trail on a compass bearing of 230 degrees. The tree is about 20 feet off the trail and is the first large Scotch Pine visible on that side of the trail. Your prize is hidden under logs and bark on the Northwest side of the tree.
