Access this history highway from Tenn Highway 100, west of Nashville. When you access this history highway here, you are at mile marker 444. Go about 13 miles to Old Trace, at mile post 426.3. The U.S. Army cleared this section of the "Natchez Road" in 1801-02 and continued clearing southward with the consent of the Chickasaw Nation.

Find the trail head. Here you have the choice to go left or right. Take the path to the right. Go down the hill, across the dry creek, back up the hill. The path back up the hill is clearly marked and has a fence handrail, but it's pretty rough, muddy, and beaten up by horses. About 50 steps past the end of the handrail up the hill, on the left side of the trail, you will see an odd tree that looks like a giant putter. The box is behind/between those 2 big trees, under a rock and debris. If you get to where the trail is close to the street again, you have gone too far.
