From the back door of the Nature Center, you enter the enclosed trail area. Walk 50 steps to the gate. Walking from the gate, you will go 19 steps to another path going to the right by an area with various plants for sale. Continue straight for another 26 steps to another path intersection where there is a bench on the right with ceramic tiles on the top. This time turn left and proceed for 137 steps till you reach a T intersection. Turn right and walk for 49 steps to the next intersection. Take the path straight(left) for another 25 steps, where you will see a green painted bench on the right. Continue past the bench for another 7 steps. Take a compass reading of 180 degrees and walk 12 steps off the path. You will be at a large tree with low branches. The letterbox is in the branches about 1 foot off the ground covered with sticks and debris. Please recover well.
The stamp was carved by my 9 year old son (Liberty Eagle).
