Centrally located between Houston and Dallas, Madisonville is a small community within three hours of over 16 million people. It has also been designated the "Mushroom Capital Of Texas", and holds the Texas Mushroom Festival each fall. It includes food, wine and even a Shiitake 5K Run at Lake Madison Park, the location of this microbox. Even if you don't like mushrooms, you should enjoy the festival or just looking for this box.

Directions:
From I45, exit west on Hwy 190 in Madisonville and go about .5 mile to a sign for Lake Madison. Bear right on East Collard to Shipp Road, which will be after the main entrance to the park. Turn right and go .5 mile to Lake Madison Road and turn right again. Go past the soccer field on your left and continue on a dirt road a little ways until it starts to turn left into the woods. Park here.

Clues:
Go to the dirt road at the beginning of the woods and walk 45 steps. Look right for a large tree 5 steps off trail. The camo microbox is hanging on a limb behind the tree about 6 feet high. Please rehide as described. NOTE: It may have fallen to the ground.
