As you hike you will notice this area was part of the severe fires of 2000.
When you get to the top of the trail, you will come to a fork. Take the left fork. Have a seat on the bench next to the campfire pit and enjoy of view.
When you are ready, turn around 180 degrees on the bench. You will see a bush right in front of you. In the center of the bush, under a flat rock, is the box.
