North on SR-503 into Battle Ground. At the intersection of W Main St. and SR-503, set your odometer to zero. Drive North on SR-503/Lewisville Hwy. 5.6 miles to NE Rock Creek Rd. and turn right. Travel on this road for 5 miles until you reach Lucia Falls Park.
note: Cat's Meow and I planted these boxes in the fall during the Salmon run and witnessed a number of large Salmon trying to jump over the falls to their spawning grounds.
Lucia Falls Letterbox:
*THIS BOX HAS WASHED AWAY. IT WILL BE REPLACED SOON!*
From the parking lot, cross the wooden bridge and follow the trail past a picnic area staying to your left. Follow the trial to a concrete bridge. The trail will curve to the left. At the curve find a large Cedar on your right guarding a rotting log covered with pine needles. Behind a rock at the foot of the Cedar is the box.
"Luv Ya" Letterbox:
(This box has been replaced as of May 9, 2004)
Continue on the trail around the curve where you will hear and see traffic on your right. Follow the trail until you reach the "T" with the restrooms in front of you. (Look familiar?) Go right at the "T" to a fork in the trail and go left heading down to the falls. From the picnic table at the look-out for the falls head 240 degrees magnetic on the lower trail past the small pond on the left. 13 paces from the log that is partially submerged in the pond, at the base of the Cedar on your left is the box hidden under a boulder behind some bark.
*Don't stop now. There are two other letterboxes in this area to find: Moulton Falls and Chelatchie Prairie Railroad.
