PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SEARCH IS ON A HIGHLY TRAVELLED TRAIL. IF YOU DO NOT COVER THE BOXES COMPLETELY, THEY WILL BE DISCOVERED AND DESTROYED. ALSO, NOTE THAT THIS SEARCH IS A BIT DIFFICULT FOR THIS VERY REASON AND WE ARE NOT ABLE TO CHECK ON IT AND/OR REHIDE BOXES VERY OFTEN!
Clue #1, the Sika Deer – enter the park, go towards the rear and park by the basketball/volleyball courts. Walk at 140 degrees on the right side of the loop trail. Go all the way to the small hill and turn right onto the trail that goes into the woods.
Cross the bridge, and go down the hill. At the second bridge, from the first plank, turn 260 degrees and go five paces to the twisted triplets. The sika deer rests beneath the triplet that is farthest from the walnut tree. (Note: This "box" is a round cylindrical container that has been covered in camo tape to hopefully, avoid the vandals that keep finding and destroying this box hunt. The lid is hinged with camo tape, so open carefully, and make sure it is EXTRA well hidden when done!)
Clue #2 – The Tiger - Return to the trail, and go on across the bridge. Go on up the hill on the trail (take the fork to the left). Just past the sharp split to the left, stay to the right. Look on your right for the tree covered in bird feathers. To find the box, go behind this tree. Standing with your back to the tree, look out, slightly to the left where the vines cross to make an 'X'. The box is hiding under log directly to the left of the 'X'. (Note: this is a new journal and hiding spot as the original spot was vandalized too many times).
Clue #3 – The Lion - From the South East side of the tree, head 11 paces at 100 degrees back to the trail.
Head 210 degrees down the trail. Look for the lion’s scratching post on your left at 180 degrees.(NOTE: THE LION LET OUT A MIGHTY ROAR AND KNOCKED HIS SCRATCHING POST OVER. IT IS STILL THERE, BUT NOW IT IS ON IT'S SIDE!) Head towards it 18 paces. The lion is behind it, hiding in his den.
You are finished! Congratulations! You have seen all of the animals on this safari! Head back to the trail and continue at 300 degrees on the trail. Just past the halo arch, is a fork, go left. Trail comes out in to the field. Follow the tree line on the right. Parking lot where you started is ahead on the right.
