This is my first letterbox I've placed, and I've made it an easy one. This is an easy one to find,so take your time, and enjoy your walk in the woods.

Behind the Mitchell Museum, head North across the grounds, cross two bridges over the pond to the beginning of the nature trail. Follow trail West for a short walk to a T. Take the North trail from here. Still bearing North, enter the bird sanctuary. At next T, turn East. Take a short walk to a clearing. Now it's back the way you came. Backtrack to the bird sanctuarysign, and turn East to a wood shelter. Standing in front and facing the shelter, on the left side, walk apprx. 35 paces to the large fallen tree. Facing fallen tree, Cedarhurst letterbox is apprx. 4 foot to right of stump and under log. Easy, yes, but it was a nice walk through the woods, wasn't it?
