Difficulty: Very Easy
Terrain/Distance Drive up
Please bring your stamp, a stamp pad, pen and an old rag to wipe off the box/your hands.
Directions: Find your way to Stockport, which is S.E. of McConnelsville about 8 miles and west of Beverly about 15 miles. Once you get to the intersection of 376 and 266 stay on 266 crossing the bridge across the Muskingum river into Stockport.
Clues: Immediately after crossing the bridge turn left and park in front of or across the street from the Stockport Mill Country Inn. Walk to the front door of the Inn and go inside and check out the gift shop, restaurant and ask if you might be able to see some of the upstairs bedrooms/suites. I think you will be quite impressed with the Inn as a whole. Once you have taken the tour, go back out the front door and turn left down the sidewalk to the twin benches. Sit and view the rushing river and then head on down the sidewalk further, passing the half buried piece of old farm equipment and on to the end of the sidewalk. Follow the rope to the left to the stacked up stone blocks. The Mill letterpouch is behind the corner formed by the three high stack of stones and the single high stack of stone. Discretely retrieve the pouch from beneath the small stones and you might head back to your car or the benches to do the stamping. Once done, please reseal the baggies well and discretely re hide the pouch as you found it. Not to far away you will find letterboxes at the Big Muskie Memorial and also a new one at The Wilds. A great weekend (we did it for my Fathers Day) is to spend the night at the Mill Country Inn and then have the excellent Sunday Buffet lunch there and then head up to McConnelsville and up 78 to the Big Muskie letterbox and then on to The Wilds for an air conditioned bus ride around the 500 acre endangered species park.
