Starting place is any New River Trail access. Along the New River Trail, heading south of Foster Falls Village, pass trail courtesy sign to nature's picnic table overlooking the New River. Resting here look 90 degrees and you will see some animal dens. Go to the one with a shelf at it's entrance. This shelf holds the NRT letterbox. Don't give up if it's not there. It has been found a few feet from it's hiding place before, but please return it to it's proper home on the shelf.
