This box is an exercise in backbearing, so you will need a compass. If you need help doing backbearings, let me know.
Go to Riverbend Park and follow the signs to the Nature Center, not the Visitors Center. The center itself is closed except for special events, so you might want to go to the Visitors Center, and its nice bathrooms, first.
Find the Paw-Paw Trail and follow it to the service road (which is marked "Trail". Follow the service road downhill (to the right) to the River Trail. Follow this trail upstream. When you come to a bridge, cross it and continue upstream until you come to a clearing. You will see a cyclone fence uphill to your left and, on your right, a clump of 4-5 trees including a sycamore. Landmark #1 is the east corner of the fence; Landmark #2 is the clump of trees. The bearing from the box to #1 is 141º; from the box to #2 the bearing is 90º.
