This letterbox is located about a 1/2 mile north of the US 31 Bypass on Wabash Road.
Once you get to Wabash Road follow along about 1/2 mile to a split in the road. Follow the right side for about 50 yards from the split.

If you followed correctly, you will be parking your vehicle in the Judy Burton Nature Preserve. Enjoy the Great Outdoors.

From the parking lot, take the trail you see into the first woods. Walk through and enjoy the scenery. Soon you will find a bench. Sit down and cool off, enjoy the moment.
Pick up again when you are ready and keep along the same path, which will eventually lead to another field and some more woods. Turn south (right) and travel down an old tractor path for just about 50 yards. Notice a smaller path to the left that runs through some pine trees. Follow this down a hill and eventually you meet a split in the trail. Stay left and venture across an old land bridge, up a small hill and procede to take another left. Follow this trail to yet another bench and have a seat facing the lake. Notice the beauty of nature all around you. Look to your left and at the bottom of a hill you will notice a forked tree.

There is where you will find the treasure that you seek.
