Bailey's Harbor Lighthouse Letterboxes (2)

*I'll be very happy to give any of these boxes back to their original owners upon request.  I have only adopted these boxes for upkeep and historical means and do not count them among my planted boxes.

Old Bailey's Harbor Lighthouse

Difficulty: easy
Terrain: slightly rocky
(Door Co. Lighthouse Series Letterbox #2)

New Clues:

Directions: Bailey's Harbor is located on Highway 57 in Door Co. Wisconsin. The starting point for both letterboxes is here. 

Follow Ridges Rd. from Bailey's Harbor all the way to the end. When you can see Lake Michigan at the end of the road, you're there. Drive into the small parking area and park in the circle. From the large rock at the beginning of the trail, walk 50 paces towards the water down the trail.  Turn right and you will see the old light house straight ahead.  Walk 10 pace in that direction, passing a white rock on your right, to a large piece of old drift wood.  Move the two smaller rocks on the other side of the wood to reveal the box under the larger rock.  Please re-hide well!

Follow Ridges Rd. from Bailey's Harbor all the way to the end. When you can see Lake Michigan at the end of the road, you're there. Drive into the small parking area and the lighthouse will be on your right. Walk toward the water, keeping the lighthouse on your right. When you reach the rocky shoreline, turn to the right and walk toward the lighthouse. Watch your step as you make your way over, and you will find the letterbox. 


Bailey's Harbor Range Lights
Difficulty: easy
Terrain: easy
(Door Co. Lighthouse Series Letterbox #3)

New Clues:

This double lighthouse is also on Ridges Rd., but nearer the beginning than the end. If you follow the left hand path (not the one that is closed) as you go toward the beach from the lower range light, you will come to a wooden bridge with a small ramp.  Not including the ramp, take 30 steps along this bridge and look beneath the left side.  Please re-use the loose piece of wood to hold the box in place and to cover its top so it can't be recognized through the slits of the bridge.

If you have the time, take a hike on the paths of the nature preserve.  You will find an information sign near the lower range light.  If you do, be sure to make a donation! Thanks!
