This box was originally supposed to have been placed on the Mount Baldy trail, but due to road closures, I had to pick a different place. So donít be confused by the type written statement taped to the outside of the box.
Mogollon Route - Take State Hwy. 87 north to Payson. From Payson, take State Hwy. 260 east following the Mogollon Rim to Show Low. At Show Low, continue on Hwy. 260 through Pinetop-Lakeside and McNary to State Hwy. 273. Turn Right on Hwy. 273. (turn off for Sunrise Ski Resort). Continue South. 273 turns into Forest Road (FR) 113. Continue south past Big Lake till you see FR 24. Take that south to Buffalo Crossing. At Buffalo Crossing take FR 25 West. Travel till you see a sign for West Fork Black River. Cross that bridge. If you stop, and look towards the right you will see a big salmon colored level weir. Just after the bridge, pull off into the first turnoff on the right. Drive up that little hill and park.
Clues: The letter box is at the base of the first forked pine tree you see. If you canít find it this way, see the link for more clues and pictures.
