Upon entering Ringhaver Park follow the parking lot around to the back playground. Your journey will begin near the pavilion on the concrete path behind where the yellow spheres fly. When you go over the wooden boardwalk, that is a pretty good piece along the way, you know you have chosen the right path. After the boardwalk you will go under a low leaf canopy near a resting place. Have a seat and take a break if you need to rest. Continue your journey on the concrete path. Where the gator splits be sure to stick to the left. You are getting close. As you continue down the path be on the look out, on the left hand side you will see a palmetto bush just near a sand path. (Hint: If you pass the Victory tree you have gone too far.) You will need to veer off the concrete path in order to discover your find. Just beyond the palmetto bush and sand path you will find a cluster of pines protecting the uprooted hiding place.
