Roundtrip: 40 minute walk from parking car on Calle La Cruz– moderately easy.

Starting location: Rio Road and Hwy 1, Carmel, CA

Proceed south on Hwy 1 for .8 mile to Ribera Road, Carmel Meadows.
Follow Ribera Road until you see a road called Calle La Cruz.
Turn right on Calle La Cruz and continue to the cul-de-sac, and park along the curb.
Look for a gate across a trail leading down. Cross under gate and continue walking.
Look for the cross straight ahead on the hill and the Carmel River to the right.
Continue on path straight toward the ocean until you get to an intersection of trails where the gravel continues to the right. Now turn left, south along the ocean.
Continue walking past homes on left hillside and head toward large rocks in the distance.
When you see steps coming up from the beach and continuing up the hillside, turn left up the steps counting 16 steps. Under the bench, your prize is hiding under two rocks. Please be mindful of replacing box and rocks as the previous box (Brown Fedora) has already been vandalized.
