Hike Distance?

Note: Below are two ways to find this letterbox, one a little easier (15-minute Quick Hike) and one that's a "moderate" difficulty challenge (Bike/Extended Hike Version). Choose your favorite, download the Stanley Park map online, and have fun!

15-minute Quick Hike:

1. In Stanley Park, take Park Drive to the north part of the park and turn onto the Chickadee Trail on your left.

2. Take the first trail, a low path, on your left.

3. At the base of the hill, there’s a beaten path (easy to miss!) to your right.

4. Standing at the opening to the correct path you should see a few large trees growing atop an old stump at 210 degrees. The road is behind you.

5. Walk along the path until you come to a log laying across the path. Stand on this log.

6. Walk to a cluster of several trees you’ll find to your right (at 240 degrees) as you stand atop the fallen log.

7. The box is hidden under bark and moss at the base of the south side of this cluster of trees (and under several fallen logs).

Bike/Extended Hike Version:

For more fun, take your bike (or rent one near the park) and set out for an afternoon biking in the park with these instructions. It should take 45 minutes - 1 hour.

1. Find the trailhead for Bridle Trail at the northwest side of 2nd Beach Pool, across Park Drive from that pool. Get on Bridle Trail and head north for quite aways.

2. When you reach the intersection with Lee and Cathedral, stay on Bridle.

3. At the intersection with Tatlow, continue on Bridle.

4. Come to a 4-way intersection with a big red fire hydrant in the center. Take a right and go up, over, around, and down. Continue along the trail.

5. At the intersection with 3 trails, follow the one with a small sign directing you to North Park Drive.

6. At the bridge, count the vertical (not angled) posts on the north side railing. Remember this number.

7. Turn right (east) as there’s a bridge to your left just after a “Beaver Lake” sign.

8. With the small bridge behind you and Hanson going left & straight, go straight and continue east.

9. When Hanson meets Eagle, remember that number from step 6. If it was even, go right on Eagle (south). If it was odd, go left on Eagle (north).

10. Pass the intersection of Reservoir and Eagle.

11. Pass a place where there is a clearing showing the road on your right.

12. The small, beaten path (easy to miss!) is on your left just as the trail begins curving upward and to the left.

13. Standing at the opening to the correct path you should see a few large trees growing atop an old stump at 210 degrees. The road is behind you.

14. Walk along the path until you come to a log laying across the path. Stand on this log.

15. Walk to a cluster of several trees you’ll find to your right (at 240 degrees) as you stand atop the fallen log.

16. The box is hidden under bark and moss at the base of the south side of this cluster of trees (and under several fallen logs).
