1-5 North or South take the 128th St. Exit in Everett. Head east on 128th. McCollum Park will be on the right hand side about a ½ mile from I-5. There is a swimming pool to your right just as you turn into the park. Park on the North side of the swimming pool.
Head west down paved path toward the pool. At bottom of small hill leave pavement and follow gravel path to the right. You will pass two interpretive signs. #1 North Creek Stream Flow #2 North Creek Vegetation. Follow the path you will see a large A-Frame picnic area.
Just off to the left of the A-Frame is the DUI Memorial Wall.

You will pass a “Western Red Cedar” interpretive sign on your right. On your left is a sitting bench. Also pass the “Sword Fern” interpretive sign.
At your next “y” follow path to your right. You will pass the ¾ mile marker. You are walking the path backwards, so your mile markers are going backwards.
On your right you will pass a dead tree standing with a small fern sticking out the top.

Head up the small hill to the cedar grove. This is where we found a snake sitting in a small sunspot.
You will pass another sitting bench, two very large rocks & the ½ mill marker all on your left.

Pass the wood fence on your right. North Creek is running behind the fence.
As you follow the path you will come to another sitting bench. Sit down and take a load off. As you sit on that bench you will see a short path that leads down to the creek. Just off to the left you will see a large tree stump. This stump is approx. 30 steps from the bench.
If you pass the ¼ mile marker you have gone to far.
Behind the stump is a hole hollowed out that contains the “Head Heart Health & Hand” letterbox. There is a piece of bark over the top of the container.
Please cover & hide well when finished.
