There is a great swimming hole at Inks Lake State Park called the Devil's Waterhole, and it is a great way to cool off in the summer or visit any time. It is an extension of Inks Lake and can be reached by canoe or hiking trail. This microbox is on the trail nearby.
From Burnet, go 9 miles west on Hwy 29 to Park Road 4, then go south 3 miles to the park entrance on the right. Pay fee, get a map and turn right at next intersection. Drive to the trail head for Devil's Waterhole near campsite #245 and park.
Follow the trail about 200 yards to the waterhole, then continue northeast up the rocks about 50 yards to a dirt path on the right just before you crest the rock climb. Follow the path about 40 steps to a trash can on the right. Turn left and go about 20 steps on a small path to a juniper tree on the right growing among the rocks. The camo microbox is within the trunk under a rock and needles. Please re-cover well.
