Hike Distance?

Heading South on Illinois Route 3 turn left on Parkview Drive. Head up the hill to the entrance to Bolm-Schuhkraft Memorial Park. Turn right into the park. Park in any available space. Find the memorial made to Admiral John P. Weinel and Admiral Carlisle A.H. Trost. The flag memorial was provided to serve as an inspiration to youth to take advantage of educational and social development opportunities that exist in America.

Facing the bell so that the American flag is on the left. Walk to playground that is approximately 90 degrees to the right. Just beyond the playground you will see a walking path. Head south on the walking path. Just as you pass 3 pine trees on the left, there will be an opening in the trees on the right. Walk between the trees on the right to find a dirt path that leads down to a bridge.

Walk across the bridge, look next to the second to last handrail pole on the left. Make sure to recover the letterbox with sticks (etc.) to keep this box hidden.
