Driving directions: Drive approximately 8 miles up the road which leads to the Santa Fe Ski Area. Continue on, past a building on the right that is a visitor info center. Then turn right onto the Main Campground Loop. Drive to Group Shelter 2 and park nearby. Hike up the driveway toward Group Shelter 2. Continue on, through the 3 wooden posts. Follow signs on trail for Circle Trail and Visitor Center. Shortly you will see another sign for the Circle Trail and the Waterfall Trail - take the Waterfall Trail .As you ascend the trail, you will come to a point where there is a large fallen tree right across the trail, and you will have to go under it. From here, go 45 steps to 2 very straight pine trees flanking either side of the trail. Just upstream from here you will see a place where you can cross the stream to the trail on the right-hand side of the stream. From the end of the trail on the RIGHT side of the creek, turn around and notice a tall tree covered in long vertical streaks of sap. From here, walk back down the trail about 33 paces. You will see a large tree on the right side of the trail with boulders butted up against it. Look on the downhill/stream side of the tree (best approach is from uphill side of the trail) at the base of the trunk for a few rocks hiding box.
