The Grassi Lakes Trail is very popular and leads past a waterfall to two small turquoise lakes. Beyond the lakes are boulders that have pictographs drawn in ocher on them. The most distinctive one is a man holding a medicine wheel near where this box is located.

Follow Smith-Dorrien-Spray Lakes Road (Highway 742) to just past the Nordic Centre and before it turns to gravel. Turn left at the Grassi Lakes sign and follow this descending road for 500 meters to the trail head parking on the right.

Walk on trail to second lake and find bench on left dedicated to David Cote (I recommend going up on left, more difficult trail and back down via fire road). Go back 12 steps to boulder on right then uphill 12 steps to 2 boulders half buried. Look in crevice on top of left boulder to find microbox under rocks. Please be discreet since this is a popular place. To see the pictographs you must hike up from the end of the lake.
