Hike Distance?

Last reported: May 2004

This letterbox was placed just after I found my 100th letterbox. I wanted to commerate the occasion and happened to have this box in my bag. It was carved during my daughter's study of penguins. It's a very cute stamp, one of my better ones if I do say so myself. Rumour has it there's a very "crappy stamp" in the area, which I didn't know until I got home of course.

This is about a one mile round trip hike from the trail head. If you combine it with the Goofy Pub Names series it's about a 2 mile hike with enough vertical climb to make my 4 year old cry nay enough. The trail is narrow in some areas so not very stroller friendly.

DIRECTIONS: From NW 23rd and Lovejoy, head West up Lovejoy. This will
turn into Cornell Road. After the second tunnel there is parking for
Upper Macleay Park on the right-hand side. There is a stone sign that
says "Macleay Park". This and the next driveway are the parking area
for Upper Macleay Park.

To the box:
Head across the street to the trailhead for the Wildwood Trail. Take the Wildwood trail until it intersects the Cumberland Trail. Walk down the Cumberland Trail until you find a bench to sit upon. Behind the bench there are several trees. The one that hides this letterbox is about 20 feet behind the bench and the box is tucked between and upright tree and a fallen log.

Happy hunting!
