Hike Distance?

Planted this box in honor of Momma (Gran). This little park is a great stop off for those wanting to photograph the canyon. It is usually quiet and peaceful. The only sound outside of nature is the occasional truck trying to climb the hill and a car driving by. This is a beautiful place to take a look at the canyon below. Don't forget you camera.

To the box:
From Silverton Texas you will take Hwy 86 east. Drive approx 2.4 miles to the junction to Hwy 256. Take the hwy 256 and from the turnoff drive approx 7.9 miles. You will find the Schott Canyon Overlook park on your left. When you enter the park you will want the covered picnic table on top to your left. Park there and notice the marker for William E Schott. Walk to the marker and read his story. Now standing facing the front of the marker glance up and notice there is a pole in front of you. Just to the right of the pole in you view there is a cross. between the pole and this cross there is a larger cedar bush. Walk to the bush. Go around to your right behind this bush. There are some scrub bushes just behind and a little to your right. Under those scrub bushes is your box. There are some cedar limbs covering the box. Please rehide well and upright so the moisture won't get in.
