Be sure and check out the boxes placed by others located

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
You'll soon leave the city behind and begin climbing into the
mountains. Keep an eye out for the historical marker signs indicating
the turn-off on the left, just before the turn-off to Crestline.
Pull in and find a place to park (easy on weekdays, not so easy on
busy weekends.) Look for the actual historical marker and head over to
it. After you read why they placed the marker here (getting in a quick
history lesson on the area in the process), turn towards your left.
Follow the curb down about 25 paces to a multi-trunk tree growing out of
the mountain side. The box is buried under a few rocks inside the
"V" formed by the trunks. Take care while making the short
scramble up and down as the leaves can be slippery after rains.
