Supplies needed: Your Basic letterbox carry all.
Route 44 North to the end, (In the winter months the entrance to the north east parking lot is chained off) Here is a way to avoid a long walk. As you approach the Headlands Park sign at the stop sign, turn right. About 20 feet turn left (BEFORE THE TRAIN TRACKS.) Morton Salt will be on your right enclosed with a cyclone fence. There will be a sign "24 hr. Access to Fishing", turn left. A short distance at the stop sign, turn right. Follow this to the far north eastern corner parking lot.
Find the paved path that leads you to the "Headland Dunes State Nature Preserve" .
To your right is the "Fishing access "path. Follow this dirt trail along a split rail fence to the end.
Take a left.
Soon the trail will form a Y. On your right find 2 large flat rocks, slightly burried in the sand.
To your left is an opening in the fence...enter. A 1 1/2 trunked, 3 foot tall, tree stump will greet you.
Stay to the right side of all the V's on main path.
Only a short walk will take to a small mound on the right that supports a bunch of dead tree trunks.
If you passed the arched tree, you have gone to far...
Facing the mound, take 24 paces to the furthest fallen old tree, on the lake side
About 3 feet from its break off point, between it's branch, a small bush grows and with the help of some bark, thus.... your search ends.
I live near the "North Coast"...dosen't that sound cool?
Be sure to rehide well with no on lookers. Please be respectful to the area.
