Finding the letterbox will take approximately 15-20 minutes. Walking and bikes recommended, though there is a large hill on the trail.
Enter the park and you will see a well on the left hand side by the parking lot. This is where the hunt will begin!
Take the path to the right of the well and follow straight ahead. At the #13 post, take a right. Stay on this trail over the bridge. Keep to the far right past the bench by the small river and you will come to a "Y" with a green arrow. Go against the arrow direction and head up the hill.
Hopefully you're not too tired to follow the main trail to the left. You will come to the Eagle trail (a smaller bike trail), follow that. Starting at the bench, follow the trail 68 paces and STOP. **Please note that the bench has been taken out by a fallen tree, start the 68 paces at the start of the Eagle trail and you should be ok**
To the left, you will see a downed tree (maybe 15-20 paces). You will find a grasshopper hiding there.
We have now expanded this letterbox with two additional boxes. Please check out "Lowes Creek Park #2" for the additional directions! :)
**Because of the location and the many bikers and walkers, we ask that you be discrete and hide the box well after you find it. This box will also likely be hard to find in the winter with snow cover. $3.00 parking fee is required at all Eau Claire county parks**
