Difficulty: A fellow letterboxer, Capt Kirk, suggested that this should be rated as moderately difficult terrain and physical effort.
Terrain: Fairly hilly
Please bring your stamp, a stamp pad, pen and an old rag to wipe off the box/your hands. You might also want to pick up a walking stick to swish in front of you on the narrow trail to break open the cob webs. Bug repellant might come in handy during the summer months.
From the Indian Mound Letterpouch continue on the Indian Mound trail to an intersection of trails and go left to an ~ 015* heading following the arrow on the tree. You will descend, level off for a ways and then back up we go onto another mound? where we find another intersection of trails. I think we are rejoining the lake trail and we go left to an ~ 290* heading and start down for our return to Dow Lake Dam. A short ways down on the right, a few steps off the path, is a four trunked, large oak, with a dead limb or 5th trunk. "My Summer letterboxing shoe" letterpouch is hidden behind this tree under limbs. Your return trip is mostly downhill the rest of the way back to the dam but stay to the left until reaching the trail signs on the left before turning right and heading down. And on your way back enjoy the trip under the tree bridge and climbing over the rock formations in the path.
