Walk under the bridge and follow the trail into the woods. You will pass two clearings where the asphalt splits briefly, then rejoins the trail.

Mark forty paces (a single footfall) from the point where the second pavement split rejoins the trail. On your left, there will be a trail (non-paved) leading to a park bench. If you sit on the bench, you'll have a great view of the railroad. Trains are quite frequent and will blow their horn if you wave. While sitting on the bench, look directly to your right. There is a small path leading away from the clearing. Starting from the bench, take ten paces along this path. You'll find the multi-trunked tree shielding our box on the left of the path. The box is covered with a rock on the back side of the tree. Feel free to move back to the bench and stamp in. When rehiding, please make sure the box won't slide down the slope and that it is hidden from view.
