In the state park, quest to where the lucky number overlooks a meadow leading to Grass Lake. Wise knights do not rely on notoriously unreliable trail signage, but get their bearings from a map.

From the bench at the lucky number, take a bearing of 80o to spot a deer path entering the woods. Take115 steps on the path of righteousness. Ignore the molotov cocktails you may see in the woods as you seek the holier explosive.

The path of righteousness will lead you to a large 10-limbed tree. Follow the fallen limb (blown off in an explosion) at 340º to its joint. Try walking along the limb when retrieving the Holy Hand Grenade to avoid developing a social path—we wouldn’t want such power to fall into the wrong hands.
