Monty Pythonís The Holy Grail.

Before beginning your quest for this box and the Grail please visit the Holy Grail main page (high speed) (dial-up) and read about the specifics of the series and about its special


Begin your quest at the Pilcher Park Nature Center in Joliet, Illinois.  Park in the lot for the Barber and Oberwortmann Horticultural Center on Gouger Road, just North of Rt. 30.

Walk to the back of the greenhouse and you will find the nature trails.  You will want to take the pink & lavender trail which is a dirt trail to the Southwest of the greenhouse.  After following the trail a bit, you will come to an intersection. Take the lavender trail to the right toward the Flowing Well.  After about 100 steps, you will come to an old downed tree that had lain across your path, but is now cut in two. Turn to the left and at the root end of this tree, your quest ends underneath the tree, hidden under a rock and some leaves.  Be sure to re-hide the box well!

To complete the loop, continue on until you reach the paved red and lavender trail.  Take a right on this trail and it will lead you back to your car.  If time permits, be sure to walk through their beautiful greenhouses!
