Hike Distance?

From I-10 East, continue on to I-610 East towards Slidell. Take the Canal Blvd./West End Blvd. Exit (1A) and turn left (north) onto Canal Blvd. Then turn right on Harrison Ave. for about .5 mile and the Arboretum Trail parking will be on your left.

Walk north on the Arboretum Trail (which is almost non-existent since hurricane Katrina) to a junction with a trail map sign (torn up and on the ground), and sight the observation tower, straight ahead. Go to the observation tower, which is the highest elevation in New Orleans. From bottom of platform, take the path to the left, and walk back the way you came for 15 steps, starting down the hill. Look left (west) for 2 trees growing together, about 5 steps off trail. The letterbox is buried at their base on the far side under three rocks. Please re-cover well.
