5 Mile Hike
Interesting enough, as I was looking up some train tunnel history to share, I came upon a web entry that listed a letterbox near the train tunnel. Hmmm we just might have to go back soon.
Here is the letter box clue:
To find this letterbox you need to locate the train tunnel first. The train tunnel is approximately one mile south from the gate on the east side of the river. The former railroad trail becomes very visible as you travel southward on the road by the river. Simply continue to follow the rail road trail.
Then once at the tunnel, walking from the train tunnel North bound you will come to a four way intersection of trails about 300 to four hundred feet from the tunnel entrance.
You want to take the trail to the right going south east.
The trail to the left will take to to the dirt road by the river.
Walk approximately 300 feet up that trail and to the left is a large mutant pine tree with 7 or more tree trunks. The letterbox is in the base of that tree covered with sheets of tree bark.
For those of you that do not know what letter boxing is, I have left a link. Really cool stuff! You can also read about our past letter boxing adventure here
