To find the box: Park at the pavilion in Johnson Park. Follow the walking path (creek on your right) to an old bridge. Read the interesting history and then cross the bridge. The first box is on the right near a hollow stump under a chunk on cement. To find the second box go left of the bridge and follow along creek to a two trunked tree. The box is at the base on the creek side.
