Easy clues in and around the city park.
From I84, exit towards McCall on Hwy 55 at #46. Travel north on Hwy 55 until you arrive in Horseshoe Bend. Find your way to park at the City Hall/ Visitor Center (on the Hwy 55 and Ada St).
Start at the City Hall/Visitor’s Center’s brown sign and head north to the Gold Rush of 1862 Historical Marker. To its left (north), you will see the pride of Horseshoe Bend, a section of a tree 5’-6’ in diameter. In the general direction where the gold rush occurred or better yet somewhere behind where the growth rings boast, search for a tree of four trunks. From there, cool off at the water fountain (maybe just splash your face with it instead of trying to drink the water). Head about 34 paces at 210 degrees away from the fountain. Inside some sort of a spruce tree and at the north east corner of a building you will find the horseshoe letterbox.
Once you have stamped your book and hid the letterbox back discreetly inside the tree and out of sight, enjoy the shade under the bigger trees before you head north perhaps to raft or kayak.
