***********************************************************Print clues for Smokey Bear letterbox and bring with you!!!

Locate the State Forest Headquarters on SR 374. Find the large painted Smokey Bear sign in front of the building. Which way is Smokey looking?? Travel .3 miles along the road in the direction Smokey is looking. That distance will take you to the end of the guard rail on your right. Park immediately at the end of that guard rail and find a small wooden park sign just inside the edge of the forest which says, "White Pine Planted in 1931." Find the Smokey Bear letterbox from the clues you printed before you left from home.

From that location, go 6 paces at 10 degrees to a 3-4 foot stump. Smokey's Shovel is under decaying tree chunks inside the stump.
