|Placed Date||Aug 25 2011|
|Location||North Beaver Municipal Park, New Castle, PA|
North Beaver Municipal Park is located on Route 108 about 2 miles from the entrance to Rt. 376.
When you enter the park turn right. There will be baseball fields on your left. Just past field #3 on your left is a parking lot with a picnic shelter. Park here. Head into the woods. This area is the site of several Eagle Scout Troop 721 projects, one by my son Ben. The land was cleared, picnic tables, grills, and seating placed, and a path cleared. You need to go to the left side and follow the trail that will appear there. As you walk, you'll see the ballfields through the trees on your left, as well as some of the park benches. You will pass two sets of two benches. At the "Y" stay right-the trail circles back. Keep an eye out on your left for soccer fields. When you see a soccer field and an electrical tower through the trees on your left, you are very close. Look for a double tree with a light grey branch growing from its base in front. Look inside the tree for the box. Be careful-there are some thorny vines here. Please rehide the box so it can't be seen. Continue on the trail till you reach the parking lot where you began.
