The "Horned Owl #2" Microbox is located in Texas' oldest State Park, Mother Neff. Mrs. Isabella Eleanor "Mother" Neff donated six acres of land in 1916 to the state to form this first park. It now comprises 259 acres, being developed by the CCC in the mid 30's. The park features 2.75 mils of hiking trails, with an Indian cave. Horned Owls are also visitors to this park.


Located 8 miles west of Moody on Hwy 236. From Waco, go south on Interstate 35. Turn right (west) on Hwy 107, through Moody, to Hwy 236. Turn left on Hwy 236 and look for the park on the right side before the Leon River.

Pick up a map at the entry station, and follow the road to the back of the park. At the "Old River Road" cutoff, stay right onto the gravel road. Go .3 miles, and park on the right at the 1st parking area you come to.

To the Microbox:

Directly in front of you is a trail. Climb down the steps
toward "Tonkawa Indian Cave". From the end of the railing, go 20 paces, across to the cave and then south on the uphill trail. Find the #26 marker on your right. From this marker, continue uphill for 12 paces to a stone in the middle of the trail. Climb up the chute to your left, going East, for 10 paces to a large rock outcropping on
the right. Find the tree in front of you with the West facing root going under a rock lip (about belt high). The box is under this lip, about 2 foot to the right of the tree base, behind some loose rocks.
