Start out on the stone steps of the Stone House. Enjoy the building. It’s pretty cool. Head down the stairs to the circle. At about one o’clock on said circle, head down the tree-lined road. You should pass some tennis courts on your right. Enjoy the slightly downhill stroll. If you brought your racket, take it out and knock some balls around the court.
Pass a brick maintenance building on your left. Keep going. You should come to a stone walkway, all part of a lovely WPA effort in the 1930’s. Go down the (fairly steep) steps. Enjoy the view from the stone wall you will come to at the bottom of the stairs. At this point you can go left or right on a descending stone walkway. As the Forest Hill neighborhood is solidly blue, take the walkway to the left.
After going a ways, you should come upon what looks like a good place to rest. Rest for a moment, if you wish. Then head down the (fairly steep) hill about twenty paces until you come to a stainless steel tombstone. Stand on the opposite ledge facing the pond and take in another good view. Then walk around to the back (sorry to play with you like that) and dig around under the leaves for the box.
When you’re done, continue your descent another twenty paces or so to the pond and enjoy a leisurely walk around it.
