Hike Distance?

Take I-80 West into Aggie territory.

(Take the Davis DOWNTOWN exit and follow the signs to Downtown. You’ll find a public parking lot on E Street.)

Walk back up E St. toward 2nd Street.

Go right on 2nd and keep a look-out for the big bronze leaf that will appear on your right.

Pause at this corner. (You can borrow a Downtown Davis Treewalk map if you’d like to do some natural treasure hunting after you’ve found the letterbox. Just be sure to return it—or make a donation—so others can enjoy the program too.)

Walk along the leaf’s non-silver side and down A, B, C, this! Street.

About five trees down, you’ll find the home of KidsCREATE.

Look to your right for the red sign with the gallery’s name spelled down.

Follow the walk alongside the building to the shady, grassy area in back.

You’ll meet a blue man with six fire-tongued companions.

This story ends as a snake’s tail.

(Hint: It’s under the edge that faces you if you have a seat on the black-cushioned bench inside the Community Gallery and look out on the sculpture through the big glass doors.)
