Here is my second "Museum and a Hike" quest. This one will enhance your enjoyment of Caesar's Creek State Park.  Plan on a couple hours for this one. You may need topographic maps.  They can be printed from with the coordinates listed here. The main map needed will be centered on the parking coordinates for the second stage mentioned below. Long pants are a good idea.  Some of the adventure is
off trail.  One portion is near a 20 foot drop-off, so be careful with your pets, kids, and spouse. 

For PART 1 of this adventure, go to the Pioneer Village (Free admission) near Caesar's Creek Lake.

SECOND PART: Go to N 39 31.360 W 83 58.665 and park.
You will need the topographic maps to use the country roads to get to this spot.  Hike to the letterbox at N 39 31.XXX and W 83 58.YYY

You can get to within 50 feet of the cache/letterbox if you follow paths but some of the paths have not been used for several years. Take care with small children. There are big drop offs here and there.  The box is at the base of a large Oak tree.

Enjoy this pretty spot and rest at the end of your quest.
