Hike Distance?

This letterbox was actually made and planted by Forest Faerie. It can be found at the Quinnipiac River Trail in Meriden. This is a great trail for wheels of any kind. Just be careful-some sections are very close to the river and have no fencing.

From the Red Bridge: Enjoy the beautiful peaceful surroundings (and maybe even other letterboxes) on your walk until you come to the 3/4 mile sign. Look up the hill while enjoying the stroll and on your right you may see a big gathering of 5 trees on the side of the hill with dead bottom branches reaching out to greet you. Right in front of the peaceful gathering is a two-sister tree. Using the two sisters as a starting point, walk 15 paces foreward. (Remember, 1 pace = 2 steps.) To your right, there is a tree where three sisters stand side-by-side, and where the Faerie of Meriden makes her home. To find her, climb up to the tree (but be careful of going up the hill), and go behind it. You'll find her hiding at the base waiting for you! However, do be very careful-faeries shouldn't show themselves when there are OTHERS around. Please go to the nearby bench(up the trail on the left) to enjoy her company and please re-hide her well.
