Description: All up hill hike to the letterbox. It took me about an hour round trip. Allow 1-1.5 hours to get this one and The Cross Letterbox and the Niece's Delights Letterboxes.
Directions: Take Exit 54, Broadway Ave, from I84 and head north into Boise. Broadway eventually turns into Ave B, but stay on this road until you can turn right onto Warm Springs Ave. Turn left on Penitentiary Rd and follow signs to the Old Idaho Penitentiary parking lot. Start at the hiking information sign.
Clues: Table Rock Trail 15. Up, up and away. Before you reach the “B,” keep your eyes out for a grouping of geological signs. From the first sign you reach, head directly south of it to some smaller rocks among the large boulders. Behind them A-Bear used to be ready for the snow. However, from this old hiding spot, head 310 degrees, for 27 steps gently descending toward a long white/gray lounge rock with a crevice at one end hiding the box. OK so my compass was going crazy here so if it was wrong, you want to go RIGHT along the boulders down toward the white/gray lounge rock.
This box seems to be moved around, so hopefully this will be a more secure hiding spot. Please re-hide well.
