Hike Distance?

NOTICE: Merlin and Ardea adopted this set for a time, and they have told me Red is missing and Wolf was retrieved due to leakage (the spot seemed good to me). Both are not available until a replant can occur.

I wanted to be a little more creative, but time is not easy to come by between work and school. These boxes were made for the Haunted Harvest Gathering on Oct. 1, 2005.

Wisconsin Hiker for organizing the event for which these boxes were made.
Merlin and Ardea for placing the boxes and writing the clues.
Puddlejumpers for their enthusiasm and helping me with stamp carving and box-making.

County park west of the city. Park is located east of Townline Road, north of Good Hope Road and south of County Line Road.

There is a fee to enter the park. In 2005 the rates are $5/car on summer weekends and $2.50/car on summer weekdays and any day in the off-season (SEP thru mid-May). If you are a local resident you may wish to purchase an annual pass.


Begin hiking west on the trail that is north of the Family Picnic Area. Stop where the trail enters the forest. Take a bearing of 131° and go 65 steps to a large, "Wolf" oak. Then go 32 steps at 144° to an old Hickory. You will find Little Red Riding Hood hiding in the base. EDIT: I have been told this box is MIA. You'll need the info to get to the second box tho.

Return to the edge of the forest and continue west on the trail. Pass through the woods to the open field. From the east edge of the woods go back 16 steps and take the trail on the right that bears southeast. Continue to the flat rock opening and the picnic table. You will find The Big Bad Wolf in his cave at 186° from the picnic table.
