In Mansfield take rte 195 to Rte 275 or rte 32 to 275 Owen's Mere is a tract of land owned by the Joshua's trust land preservation group on the side of 275 . This would combine nicely with Pine for You. The sign is very obscure , you can park along the side of the dirt road, there's room for 1-2 cars.

Pass around the gate take the trail left along the edge of the pond. At the large gray birch cross the stone ford in the stream.

Continue past the two benches where you can stop to enjoy the view or a moments peace. Going on around the end of the pond to a small wooden bridge.

Cross over the bridge and turn left. Look for a curved, two sister maple tree with a gnarled base at 95 degrees. Go to an opening on the southeast side; a place where squirrels would tuck their acorns. Here is where you will find the queen's treasure.

Stamp your book secretly, replace the box where you found it. Return to the car by way of the path ahead. Hope you enjoy.

Cupid's Letterbox is in this park as well so be sure to bring clues to that one as well!
