Enjoy a drive on Howland Hill Road through Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park outside of Cresent City, CA.

Look for signs for Stout Memorial Grove and follow the road to the parking lot, a short drive off Howland Hill Rd. This is in the eastern part of the park, so if you're coming from Crescent City you'll have more than 3 miles of beautiful driving before you get to the turnoff. From Memorial Grove Parking lot, walk to the Stout Memorial Grove brown, park sign. Face it and turn right. Start the Stout Grove Trail loop.

Bear left at the loop trail sign and keep walking. You will pass some benches. As you walk down the trail it will soon branch off to the right with a sign reading "Hiouchi trail" with an arrow to the left. Take the path to the right and walk under the fallen tree.

Turn left immediately through the small passage in the roots. This can be a little tight! Once you've cleared the passage, walk 4-5 paces straight and turn to your right. There's moss-covered bark leaning against one of the fallen trees. Move the bark and find the box! Congratulations!
