San Carlos Pine Letterbox

  1. Begin your hunt at the Brittan Acres Blue and Gold Message Board in front of Brittan Acres Elementary School at 2000 Belle Ave, San Carlos, CA 94070.

  2. Take approximately 60-80 steps from the message board, down the walkway towards Belle Ave and continue on Belle Avenue until you reach the stop sign at the corner of Belle and Tamarack.

  3. Take approximately 18-20 steps West across Tamarack until you are in front of St. Charles Church.

  4. Continue for approximately 95-105 steps West on the sidewalk until you reach a sign which begins with “Unauthorized Vehicles…”

  5. Take between 110-130 steps Westward and uphill from the sign.

  6. Turn to the South at the diamond shaped piece of concrete in the dirt before you reach the concrete trail. Walk 7-8 paces.

  7. A tree in the shape of a backwards “L” should be right in front of you.

  8. You will find the letterbox near the root of the tree.
