There are two possible ways to attempt this letterbox. The first will cost at least $1.00 for parking inside this state park, the other will be free if you decide to drive further north on highway 93 and park at the top of the hill. These directions will be from the state park as I chose the safer parking site. The hike from there was elevated gradually, but the surface was smooth.
Park in the parking area nearest the entrance kiosk (drive in was supposed to be $5.00, but I was able to park for a buck). Hike north up the trail starting on the highway side of the kiosk. The trail will turn onto the old highway and you will pass by a bent arrow and then an arrowhead on your left. Shortly before you pass under some wires Chief Cliff will come into view in the distance. Find the trail marker where the trail can turn back to the park and the letterbox will be 16 steps at 215 degrees under a rock and pine needles where a tree and a rock meet.
