University of Wisconsin - Green Bay Letterboxes (5)

*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.

Cofrin Arboretum #1 (2/1/1999 LbNA Post #646)
Terrain:  Medium

New Clues:

From a lookout tower with a commanding view, take the southerly path is what you should do.  Come along to the second grove of green cedar trees (42 paces past the nine-trunked tree), and steer (sharply) left (45 paces) of the trail if you please.  Now go 190 degrees south and meet the limestone wall. You will find the letterbox in no time at all.  There is a ledge under an overhang where you can rest.  Remove the branch and loose rocks behind you to complete your quest!

**News Flash!  Apparently I missed a geocache that I apparently put the letterbox next to.  Until I get up there to fix the situation, be aware there is a geocache very close by, maybe under the letterbox? Can you say "whoops!"

Good Luck! -  Dragon

Old Clues:

Box has been moved. Temporary clues.... Take the south trail to a double trunked Cedar tree on the right side of the path. Behind is is a 9 trunked cedar tree. The box is between the two trees.....   (Feb 2001)

OLD OLD CLUES:
From a lookout tower with a commanding view,
take the southerly path is what you should do.
Come along to the second grove of green cedar trees,
and steer left of the trail if you please.
Atop a small hillock is where you can find your bearings.
Climb up and sit amid the trees if you're daring.
Now go 190 degrees south and meet the limestone wall.
You will find the letterbox in no time at all.

Good Luck! -  Steven


Cofrin Arboretum #2
Terrain:  Easy

Note:  I am leaving the original clues as is, although many have found them to be very vague and frustrating.  Know that they do get you to the box.  If you desire hints, please email me.  - Dragon


Original Clues and Box:
(9/19/1999 LbNA Post #2254)

Consult the map at the beginning of Steve's letterbox, above. When one goes clockwise, there is another observation spot for a lovely view. Once there face the north most post on the deck. At 20 degrees to your right, in front of you, you shall see a group of trees and a few bushes. Nestled among them shall be the letterbox. Warning: There are many small bunnies, mice, and live creatures around. My friend and I spied a few of them while finding a local for it. The view is truly picturesque.

Bay Shoreline
Terrain:  Easy

New Clues:

Use the above map to reach UWGB. Once on Nicolet Drive, you want the first left turn after the Main Entrance. Park anywhere at the Bay Shore Center. The path you follow begins on your left when you enter the Center.

Follow this curvy path through clearings and dark patches where the flora will not allow the light to enter.

After the first spot where you get a look at the Bay Shoreline, the path will twist & turn. Soon you will see it take a 90 degree turn to the left. But you want the path to the right.

It is a small sandy dirt trail. There you will spy an adult tree which has fallen from the shoreline. Nestled in a nook, lives a creature that eats large birds, as evidenced by the feathery remains leading into its lair.  NOT a good spot for a letterbox anymore!

So back to the short path for you.  About halfway back to the main path, spot the HUGE tree on your right.  Go walk around it, then sit on the fallen tree at its feet.  The box is under your butt.  Be sure to re-hide it so it cannot be seen!

Under the Overpass
Terrain:  Easy

New Clues:

After finding the Bay Shoreline box, continue on the path you were on, following the 90 degree turn to the left towards the road.

Follow it until the overpass, which is the second path on the right. Go completely through the underpass.  Then, on your left is a large culvert.  To the left of the culvert is a large square slab.  Move the smaller loose stones underneath to expose the box.  Be sure to re-hide so the box cannot be seen by passers-by!

Enjoy! - Dragon

Old Clues: (7/25/1999 LbNA #2040)

After finding the Bay Shoreline box, continue on the path you were on, following the 90 degree turn to the left towards the road.

Follow it until the overpass, which is the second path on the right. There you will find the box held by a stone that resembles a table on the left side.

Walking over the rocks is required and is always possible.

Enjoy! - Dierdra


Shorewood Golf Course
Terrain:  Easy

New
Clues:

The path for this box starts at Shorewood Golf Course. There is a sign showing the "entrance" to the arboretum. Follow that over the bridge.

One can touch the canopy it is so high. At the end of the bridge, take 11 paces. To your right should be a small stone path leading to the golf course.

On your compass you should spy a 90 degree course. The box is directly in front of you about 17 paces away under a large piece of loose bark.  You might want to approach it from the tee side.  Recover well so golfers can't see it!
