Coming out of Warriors Path State Park onto Fall Creek Rd. pass the golf course look to the right for Warrior Falls Subdivision turn into it go to the bottom of hill,take a right onto Childress Ferry Rd. cross over a small bridge (it may have water running over it )go to the end of road at parking area and yes, you are in Warriors Path Park . You will see signs once you get out of your car.
Go thru orange gates. There is a path on the right it is very short and goes down to the creek and some benches. Don't go there stay to the left where all of the signs are.At the (V) go to the right to D. Backbone Trail. Go across gray footbridge then across a wooden one.
Keep on the trail bearing around curve look to the right for a naked tree on creekside. STOP. Turn left and look for trees with mossy bottoms go to the second one it will have a hollow base ,here lies box #1. Keep on the trail for the next one.
You will pass a mossy giant on the left.Pass the rock ruins on the right then over the rock trail that starts going down. Walk under the arched & bowed tree. Look to the right for the Giant" wise old elder" of the forrest. The tree is partially hollow and has been carved upon. Go around to bottom and look under some bark and sticks for the second box. Please cover well.
You can cross over the bridge in sight and a very short walk will bring you to where creek runs into the lake in a secluded cove. Neat area. We saw muskrat or otter tracks there on the creekbank.
