!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THIS BOX HAS BEEN REPORTED MISSING. I WILL REPLACE AND UPDATE THIS LISTING AS SOON AS I CAN!!!!!!!!!
This box is along the Sandy Creek Trail near Franklin. NOTE: THERE IS ANOTHER BOX ON THIS SAME TRAIL. LOOK FOR SHRECK SHACK. From RT 8 just south of Franklin, turn onto Pone Lane. There is a Red Express gas station and a stop light at the intersection. Follow Pone Lane to the end and turn right at the stop sign. Follow this road to the end, there is parking for the trail on your left.
Get on the trail and cross the bridge. Enjoy the spectacular view. Follow the trail and enjoy the woods and the streams. Eventually you will come to Deep Vally Tunnel. Go through the tunnel. It is fun. After you exit the tunnel stop and turn around. See the Carved date over the entrance to the tunnel. The letterbox is up there. If you are afraid of heights or unable to scramble up over rocks, do not attempt this box. If you are game, take the left side up to the top of the tunnel. It is steep but not too bad. Right side is harder, take the left. When you get to the top, there is a rock leaning up against the hillside over the top of the tunnel. The box is under the leaning rock covered by a few smaller rocks.
There is a parking lot near the tunnel. To find out how to get to it, access the link below to the map of all the trails. If you go from this end, the box will be on the top of the entrance before you enter the tunnel.
