Clues

The hike round trip is about a mile. Have fun!

"One thousand years have passed since I, Merlin, mighty wizard of the Pendragons, magical defender of the Britons, and wise enchanter of the sword Excalibur, was imprisoned for all eternity in an Oak tree by the cunning sorceress Vivienne, whom some call Nimue."

Clue
Park your horseless carriage at the crossroads of the Orchard and Wildwood.
Head South on the hard road at a bearing of 150 degrees, counting eight driveways on your left. As you reach the eighth driveway, cross this hard road at 190 degrees. A trail will lead the way.
At the ‘T’, turn right. Take a left onto the second path you come to. When you reach concrete, walk in the direction of 175 degrees.
Following your bearings you will soon realize that you have been on the “Wheatfield.” Turn right following the hard road until you reach the “Cotton Farm.” Again we ask that you turn right and pass the two stone rings. At the corner of the two hard roads, take a bearing of 270 degrees. Following that direction you will soon experience an elevation of eight steps. Your trek continues at 270 degrees until you come upon the last single lonely tree in the field.
With your back against the tree a course of 260 degrees will lead you to a stone ring.
Therein the wise wizard awaits you.

There are two chairs in front of the house that can be used to log in Merlin.
