This park’s namesake was of Irish ancestry and this box (perhaps) is a tribute to that ancestry…or perhaps it’s just an interesting example of a beautiful form of artwork from the Emerald Isle. Either way, find your way to this state park just NW of Greenville. There is a fee for entry.
Find the Sulphur Springs trailhead across from picnic shelters 5 & 6 and follow trail for a ways towards the Mountain Lake. Stay on the white blazed trail. You’ll cross a few bridges and pass a gazebo before coming upon the ruins. Climb up past the top of the waterfall to the trail sign. Look right for a wooden post at the edge of the hill. Walk roughly 40 steps down the flat trail away from the lake. On your right will be a pine tree (not much larger than any others in the area, though) and on your left up slightly on the slope, will be two fallen trees lying parallel to the trail. Carefully inspect the stump of the two fallen trees under 2 sticks and leave debris. May the luck of the Irish be upon you!
