Take 480 to exit #21/Transportation Boulevard/E. 98th Street. Turn North onto Transportation Boulevard, then continue on when it becomes E. 98th Street. Take a right onto Plymouth Avenue, then a left on Turney Road. In half a mile you will be turning right onto Garfield Boulevard (look for the brown Metropark sign). Stay straight around the circle towards the Nature Center. Park right after the Nature Center in front of the brick buildings.

2. Wolf Creek will be below you, on your right. You will pass a bench on your left with a “Victory” tree across from it on your right.

3. Pass the stone stairs heading up the hill on your left. You will see stone steps leading down on your right to a wooden bridge crossing Wolf Creek. Check it out it you want, but you will be continuing on this higher path.

4. Next you will come to a bench on your left; their will be a wooden bridge visible down the trail. Stop at the bench.

5. Go stand behind the bench. You will go North 17 single-stepped paces up the hill to the stone wall. The box is hidden under a flat rock in a triangular crevice about a foot tall and a foot deep along the base of the stone wall. It is visible from the bench. Be stealthy and rehide well.
