Park in the Nature Trail parking lot. Cross the road to get to the "Trail of Poems".
Here are some landmarks, so you're sure you're not lost.
We began this trail with the "Entrance to a Wood" poem.
At the poem "Woodman, spare that tree", there are trees that weren't spared.
Backtrack 15 steps from "Old Rail Fence" poem to get a glimpse of an unusual formation. You are 1/2 way to the letterbox.
Where you see "Wild Geese" fly, you'll know our box is nigh.
When you get to the poem about the United States National bird, turn around and find the bench.
You should see the old oak bench under the old oak tree.
Now follow this little poem:
Look to the left
To the tree with the hollow base,
Under a rock
Will you find our hiding place?
