This letterbox is hidden at Bradley Park. *NOTE* this letterbox fell down a hill during a storm and was replaced with updated directions on 11/02/08!

There are several entrances to the park. Use the entrance off of Nebraska and Park Street, across from Newman Golf Course.
Park your car near the twisty slide. Walk down the road, pass the Corn Stock Theater Center. Make a right at the T in the road. You will come to a frisbee golf basket (hole 6). Walk in front of it (watch out for frisbees flying through the air). Look for the trail close to the ridge. There will be a stone marker on your right. Now, turn around and look at the tree with the big hole (large enough for a letterbox). Sorry, this is not it. Keep walking down, down you go. Cross over the fallen tree and dirt hump out to where the road bends. Take the road up and stay to the right! Look really close for the trail across from frisbee golf basket #5. The path looks a bit grown over. You may have to duck under a few branches, depending on your height. Walk straight ahead past the chopped down trees. As you pass the last chopped tree, look slightly left for the trail along the ridge (keeping the ridge on your right side). Keep walking along the ridge until you can view a red roofed building below. As the roof comes into your view continue forward until you see the joining of four trees. Circle round and look low to the natural door. Nothing living in there except a couple wooly bears and our letterbox!
