This is our 1st day letterboxing. We hid our 1st box and found our 1st box on 1/1/07....Happy New Year!

Mt Diablo has a few entrances, so you will need to proceed to the North Gate in Walnut Creek. After paying your $6 entry fee, proceed 2.9-3.0 miles to the fire access road #59-11. As you are going up the mountain, you will find it on the left side of the road. A little bit up the trail, you have the choice to go straight (up) or to the left. The trail marker to the left says"to Northgate Road" Go that way. We counted approximately 251 steps, where you will find 3 fallen tree trunks, kind of lying on top of each other, on the right side of the path. In the top trunk there is a hole, which has been filled with needles. If you remove the needles and feel inside the trunk hole (downwards) you will find our box!

Happy Letterbox hunting!.....and please, return the box as you find it!
