Park you car in the parking lot and take the stairs that are between the main building and the loft building leading to the backyard. Walk around the pond and between the barn and the tennis court, you’ll find the beginning of a trail. On your right, a trail map is pinned to a tree. Right next to this tree on the right, there is another tree and you'll find the box at the base of the trunk, covered with branches.
