The "Ode to Mickey" Mini-box is located along the Terry Hershey Hike & Bike Trail near Dairy Ashford Drive. This is a great path system along the bayou, which I had no idea existed until letterboxing led me there.

From I-10 west, exit Dairy Ashford and go south. After crossing Memorial, cross the bridge over the bayou. Just after crossing, turn left into building/parking area (see blue sign for "Terry Hershey Hike & Bike Trail). Park near Dairy Ashford bridge.

To the Mini-box:
Walk across the bridge along Dairy Ashford, crossing the bayou. Once on the North side, go down the hill to the paved path. Turn right, and head West (going under Dairy Ashford). Continue down the path until you reach a bridge (about 2/3 mile). Cross over. Pass a bench on the left. At the next bench on the left, find the cement path leading down to more benches. Take this path to the 1st bench. Standing in front of the bench, looking at the bayou, go left 7 steps on a path. Now go left up the hill to the right side of the two large trees. The mini-box is wedged in between, with a stick standing in front of it. Please re-cover it well!!
