This is an ammocan hidden between the lanes of Highway 87 south of Payson (the lanes separate and are miles apart). It can only be accessed from the southbound lane.
After leaving Payson, about 6 miles from the 87/260 intersection, the southbound lanes turn southwest while the northbound lane runs to the southeast (known as Corvair Curve). About 0.5 miles after the southbound lane straightens out headed west is a small turnoff with a gate off the south of the highway. It is located at N34 09.434 W111 20.073. Turn here, go through the gate, and park.
The easiest route is to follow the dirt road past the corral, then when it starts climbing take the right-hand fork. You will go through a dry creekbed and climb up. When you see a silver watertank on your right, climb up to the top of that hill, then head west slightly down the hill until you find a cove of rocks. The letterbox is hidden in these rocks. This route is 0.3 miles one way. You can also just go up the hill to the west of the parking area if desired.
The is a geocache hybrid. If you are only letterboxing, you may stamp the log. I will email you the final GPS coordinates if needed.
If you are also planning to claim this as a geocache find, you must follow the requirements on the page (you must find the letterboxes "Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin") BEFORE you can claim this as a geocache, and then solve the puzzle for the final coordinates.
The Stamp is a wizards hat, which represents the Sorting Hat of Hogwarts
