#6 - NEEDLE ROCK (Part of the West Elk Loop Scenic Byway Series - all 12 Letterboxes for this Series may be seen at once by clicking on the "West Elk Loop Scenic Byway Series" clue sheet. Looking at that page may help direct you to this box.)

Turn right into Crawford State Park ("North Shore"). Spot Needle Rock back across the hwy! At the Fee Station, get out and stand at the post 2 feet to the left. Get out your compass and, peeking just to the right of the post, find the nicest evergreen tree toward the top of the hill at apx. 260 degrees (I say approximately because I'm not sure how accurate my $5 compass is). It's about 48 steps. Watch out for cactus!
