Turtle Back Rock:
From New Jersey: Take Route 280 West to Exit 7/Pleasant Valley Way. Turn left onto Pleasant Valley Way. Turn left onto Northfield Avenue. Turn right onto Walker Road. Turtle Back Rock in on the right
Old box went missing and it was not a good location to replant so we found a new spot & added a 2nd box. Enjoy!
After you turn onto Walker Rd you will see a parking lot on the right. Park to the far right of lot. Look for a tree marked with 3 orange squares, follow the trail to the right. (white/orange trail) After about 1/2 mile it will meet the orange trail, continue forward on the orange trail for about a quarter mile. On your left you will see a fallen tree wedged between 2 other trees about 5 ft off the ground. Walk 12 paces past the fallen tree in the direction the tree points. Look at the base of the large tree, on the west side of tree you will find your goal.

Continue on the orange trail for another quarter mile or so. On the right side of trail you will see a tree that sprouts from a big rock. Go to the back of the tree. The box is under some rocks, inside the base of the tree.
