Hike Distance?

If you are driving south on High Street, before you get to the roundabout, keep an eye on the left side of the street.

Look for signs of "the Child." You'll know it when you see it. In fact, it has a big sign on it.

Go down the hill and listen for running water.

Walk towards the running water.

You will see a bridge, which you should cross.

At the very end of the bridge, take a sharp right, take two short steps and look directly down.

Embedded in the concrete, you will see a special light gray rock with blue paint spots on it. Keep your eyes out for snakes which have been seen in and around the creek. Clear away the other rocks and you will find what you are looking for. Since this is a well-trafficked area please be extra careful to re-cover the box.

The creek bed below is a great place to find fossils and on a warm day this is a great launching point for a creek walk (though you don't need to get wet at all to find this letterbox). There is also a playground nearby. Also, you can creek walk from this letterbox to The Goat Farm letterbox.

Happy hunting!
