Fox Park? LbNA # 17616
|Placed Date||Aug 22 2005|
I found this little area while driving around one day and investigated it. While there, I saw a fox briefly and that's what gives this box its name. The parks actual name is the Lincoln Green Way and can be used as a hiking link to the Rattlesnake Recreation area.
Take the Van Buren exit off I 90 and head north on Van Buren untill it turns into Rattlesnake Drive. Continue on Rattlesnake Dr. Until you come to a BIG sign that says LINCOLNWOOD. Turn left here onto Creek Crossing. Stay on Creek Crossing until you get to Creekwood. Turn Right here and follow this street until its end where you will come to a small park and the entrance to Lincoln Green Way.
Get onto the main trail and stay on it all the way. You will go under some power lines and you will cross a bridge over a shallow irrigation ditch. Shortly past the bridge (28 steps) you will see a sign off to your left that explains a Brenail Fish Screen(read about it and go down the short path to see it). To the right of the sign you will see a stone cairn(bench?) and across from the cairn is a fallen log. Behind this log, where it touches a live tree, you will find the Fox Park? letterbox covered with bark and cones. Enjoy more of this park on your way by following another path!.
