Clue:

Follow the white triangular trail blazes around a large rock-out-crop that you may find rock climbers bouldering on and down through a lowland area. During my trek to set this letterbox I spooked two deer and saw a red tail hawk. As the trail crosses a stonewall, take a compass reading of 314° and travel 45’ to a large boulder. In the overhang of the boulder and under a pile of leaves is what you seek.

Continue your hike past Little Pond and another stonewall. This will lead you to Sunset Rock, a great place for a picnic and a sunset.
