Accessibility Information

General Rating - Fully Accessible
Open to all ages including early walkers and those in wheelchairs. Distance can be covered at a walking pace of 2+ miles per hour with no or almost no inclines of more than 100 feet. Trail may or may not be paved but is suitable for wheeled transportation (strollers, walkers, wheelchairs) and is safe for the visually impaired. Box located less than 1/4 mile from parking area.

Specific Details
Box is located very near the parking area - on weekdays, you can almost park right next to it. Retrieving the box does require being able to go over a small curb and move about five feet across dirt. Otherwise, the hunt is on solid/asphalt throughout. 

Clues

Be sure and check out the boxes placed by others located along this route.

Rim of the World Drive is accessed by taking the 215 fwy North to the 30 fwy - Mountain Resorts. You will soon see the off ramp for Highway 18, otherwise known as Waterman Avenue - take that towards Crestline and Lake Arrowhead.

After you get both the Mormon Lumber and the Rim of the World boxes, keep heading past Crestline towards Lake Arrowhead. As you draw near the turn-off for Arrowhead, on the right you'll see a picnic area located at the crest of the mountains. The picnic area is aptly named "Crest Park Picnic Area" and the view is well worth staying for a picnic. 

Drive into the area and park near the restrooms - enjoy those, they are posh compared to the ones you'll find at the Rock Camp site. Face those wonders of modern technology and, trying not to look like a fool, stick your left arm straight out to your side at a 90-degree angle to your body and point with your first finger. Look down your finger and you'll see a marker placed there by the Rotary Club. There is a bush mid-way between you and the marker - ignore the shrubbery. It's the marker you want to head for. Face the marker and again, trying not to look like a fool, stick your left arm out to your side at a 90-degree angle to your body and point with your first finger. You should be pointing at the box. Looking down your finger, you'll see the center island area and within it, a lone pine tree standing proud. The box is buried at the base of that stately tree under some pine needles and assorted forest matter.
