This is a geocaching letterbox hybrid hidden on the easternmost portion of Christopher Mountain. A good high clearance vehicle can drive within a mile in good dry weather.
Take highway 260 east from Payson. After passing Christopher Creek and the Sharp Creek Campground is the Christopher Mountain Fire control road, which is an unmarked road approximately mild later, accessible only from the eastbound lanes at N 34° 17.789 W 110° 59.092. Follow this road as it crosses the creek and climbs up the mountain. When at the top, the road will run west, but another more primitive road, noted by the same name, runs east. It appears that this was the original road on top, but the one you have taken is newer and more passable. At this point (N 34° 16.478 W 110° 59.023) either park, or if in a 4X4 you can drive up the east road. When you reach a point where the road curve north and begins to descend, with large boulders blocking the road, you will leave the road, and climb east up the hill. The letterbox is located in a pile of rocks at the very crest of the hill in a clearing. It should be very easy to locate, and the coordinates are N34 16.379 W110 58.228.
