Hike Distance?

Two new letterboxes were placed on October 21, 2002, in Richmond, Virginia at Three Lakes Park by mlg. Three Lakes Park is in Henrico County. The closest city is Richmond.

Admission is free. There is a charming aquarium in the park and you can fish from one of the lakes. There is a nice playground area, too.

Park as close as you can to the aquarium.

Take the paved path behind the aquarium past the Enabling Garden.

The paved path eventually becomes a gravel path.

Cross the bridge after the "Uneven Footpath" sign.

Take the right fork.

The Heron Box is under the third bridge that you cross from where you began on the paved path near the aquarium. It contains a pencil. Please rehide completely from view.

Get back on the path going in the opposite direction from whence you came.

Take the left fork.

Take the trail around the lakes. Watch out for sections covered in tree roots.

Take the right fork.

At the "No Fishing on This Lake" sign, go right.

Take the right fork through the wooded area at another "No Fishing on This Lake" sign.

At the top of the hill, go left on the gravel path.

Go right on the paved path.

Take the gravel path to your left.

The Turtle Box is on your left very shortly after the fishing pier. It is in a cavity in a thin pine tree. It is a microbox and does not contain a pencil. Please rehide completely from view.

To get back to your car, retrace your steps back to the paved path. Continue on the paved path to the parking lot.
