The term outhouse usually refers to a type of toilet in a small structure separate from the main building which does not have a flush and is not attached to a sewer. Port-A-Potties are more prevalent today, but some of the old-style outhouses with a half-moon window can still be found out in the country. In fact, I have used the highest outhouse in the continental United States, which sat atop Mount Whitney until 2007. There is no old-style outhouse in Jackson Nature Park, where this box is placed, but there might have been years ago. At least my box should smell better.

From Hwy 87 in Stockdale, go west on CR 401 for about 3 miles to Jackson Nature Park on the left. Park by the trail head.

Walk the Entry Trail to Jimmy's Loop and take a right. Continue to Carlton's Loop and take a right. Walk until you come to a bench, then continue anther 50 steps to a large group of cactus on the left. Go left around the cactus 9 steps off trail to a large multi-trunk tree. The microbox is within the trunks under some rocks.
