Keep going straight on Gregory Lane, (cross Pleasant Hill Road and Taylor Blvs)
Gregory Lane turns into Grayson Road.
At end of road, turn South on Reliez Valley Road.
Continue 0.7 miles to Reliez Valley Trail Head.
(You can pick up a trail map if you want to.)

Take Blue Oak trail in western direction for 1 mile.
Keep going up, following the main trail.
Take a breath every now and then and make sure to enjoy the views.
Once you get to the split between "Blue Oak Trail" and "Sprengler Trail" continue WEST to the little creek crossing Blue Oak Trail.
Where the creek passes the trail go about 15 steps South.
The box is in the tree, under some bark.

Have fun. Also, there is poison oak in this park so beware 'leaves of three, let them be'.
