This box was carved by a very good friend in TN. She sent this one to me and I sent one to her.

About the park:
Powell Butte is a large, open, 570-acre hilltop that was formed by volcanic action. From its summit elevation of 630 feet, there are breathtaking views of the surrounding city and mountains. The top of the butte is an open meadow with a stand of orchard trees; the slopes below are forested. Home to a great variety of wildlife, the butte is a wonderful place for hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, and picnicking. There are more than nine miles of trail to explore. The Mountain View Trail is paved for wheelchair accessibility, with a 5% grade and rest stops every 200 feet. Special parking for buses and equestrian trailers can be reached at the intersection of SE 162 & Powell Boulevard. Trails are closed to bicycling and horseback riding during December, January, and February.

To the box:
Park in the main parking lot off of 162nd and Powell. From the parking lot set out along the Wildhorse Trail. (Kind of appropriate isn't it?) When the Wildhorse Trail meets the Orchard Loop Trail take a left and continue on. The Wild Hawthorn Trail is another equestrain trail, make your way down it. It will eventually meet up with the Black Tailed Deer Trail which is a multiuse trail. Take a right and search for the traffic circle. In the center of the traffic circle the Tennessee Walking Horse stopped for a break. Take a look in the middle of the stump. He's there, sleeping under some bark.

Happy Hunting
