**Box #1 is missing** Please skip that clue that go onto box #2**
When coming in, drive until you are almost to the water- you will see parking on the right- park there. Take the trail that leads to the water. You will see a gravel trail- take that. Bear left at the fork. You will come to another fork, bear left. Go 30 paces and on the left you will see a twisty fallen tree- Box #1 is inside the hollow part of the tree.
Go across a bridge. At the fork, go left. At the next fork, go left. At the next fork, go right. Yes- there are 3 forks- it makes a big circle:) Walk across another bridge. Go past the ice pit/ big hole in the ground on the right. At the fork, go right. You will come to a paved trail- go left. Turn right at the dirt trail and cross the road. Go to the trail marker and go straight. You will come to a clearing, go right and take first left. About 70 paces, turn left- you will see a fallen tree in a pit about 15 ft into the woods. Box #2 is on the left side of the roots under some leaves.
Go back to the trail and go about 120 paces- you will see a creek on the left. There will be a big tree on the right with a big hole straight through- Inside on the back side is Box #3. **Update**- The tree with the hole in hit has fallen down, so we placed the letterbox behind the tree in the big hole in the ground.
Keep walking on the trail until you come to an intersection with a trail marker- go straight. You will come to another intersection- go straight and cross a bridge. 26 paces after crossing bridge- look to your left- there will be a tree on the edge with a hole in the base- roots going to the right. Box #4 will be in the hole. Please take 1 pretty little gem as a reminder of this neat letterboxing adventure.
To get back to your car- Continue on trail and you will come to an intersection- go straight. You will see the white trail- go right. At the next intersection, take a hairpin turn to the right and continue following white trail. Go straight past a bridge on left and a deep creek on the left. Continue walking and you will be walking along the river on the left. Keep straight on trail next to river. Cross a bridge and go left- still the white trail. Exit at the boat landing close to where you started.
