The dastardly Snidley Whiplash has kidnapped Dudley-do-Right and absconded with the RCMP payroll money. Can you help find Dudley and bring Snidley to justice? The first four boxes will yield 2 stamps apiece and a clue to Dudley's whereabouts. Assemble those four clues to take you to the final spot where Dudley can be rescued. Please note: the operating hours of said place are as follows:

M 12-9
W 9:30-9
T, Th, Fri, Sat 9:30-6
Sun 2-6

PS: PLEASE note the last box will not be available until Wednesday April 27th, 2005.

Also, there is alot of Poison Oak in this park...I intentionally steered clear of any patches of "leaves of three"...but there is some nearby so be careful.

This is a 3 mile roundtrip, or you can make it a slightly longer loop hike by crossing the damn at the lake and turning right at the first fork. (Consult the map at the trail signage near the damsite picnic table.) Follow the Canyon trail where it meets back up with your original trail at the wooden bridge. The Canyon trail is especially beautiful in the spring with fields of lupines, poppies and buttercups.
