Clues

There is a university in Austin named after a saint.
Find the park with the same name (hint: it's on SS Rd., west of the full circle).
Park in the lot. Pick a trail and head in a south-ish direction; downhill, towards the thicker trees, and to the creek that runs through the park. Find the dam on the creek. There is only one. It might be tricky, but it's possible to walk across. Do this. (If you aren't comfortable with crossing on the dam, or if the water is up and the flow is too powerful, follow the path downstream to the road and cross there.)

Head downstream to the big sign that says the park name on it.
To the right of the sign (when you're facing it) is a path and stairway. Head up.

At the top of the stairs, go right along the path. After awhile you'll have a nice view of the dam you crossed (or didn't cross, depending). Continue on the path about 23 steps and you'll see, on the right, the up-down-up tree. You can't miss it. Just beyond it is the twisted tree. Past that you can see a large chunk of rock that broke off from the rest. The flat rock that remains (you can walk on it) has a crevice beneath it. Look there.

This area is not far from a cliff-ish edge, so please be careful.

First finder of this box will also find a hitchhiker.

Let me know if the box is missing or corrupt.
