thanks for the advice! We will check out songbird trail. Are there any on the covered bridge island? We hiked all the way around yesterday. Our boys are pretty experienced with hiking. I don't think we are ready for the around the mountain trail or the trail to the top yet but once he gets a few months older we should be good to go. We are pretty experienced letterboxers too.

We also looked for MK's Seven Lucky Gods box but it isn't there anymore. I'm sad because their boxes top out my list of favorites.

Time for a self appreciating plug: Of Mice and Men: The Series. One on the covered bridge and one near the Song Bird Habitat. But you might try to get box #5. But too many to start to name favorites.

Is the guide link from the past LBSE gatherings at SMP still accessible? That might provide some good data.

Well, look at that. I just did a search for "Stone Mountain" guide, and my answer was posted two hours ago! =)

For an all around guide, go to Eidolon's profile page, scroll down to "Letter boxing guide to Stone Mountain" and click the link. More info than you can shake a hiking stick at.

It is still accessible, but hasn't been updated for a while. It's still a good starting place, but will need to be used along with checking to see if the boxes are still available.

Stone Mountain Park does require research and foot work before you enter the park... that box that you went looking for was missing but you walk by about 10 boxes to look for it

While that is definitely true, if you are feeling overwhelmed, I would simply recommend you find what seems obvious to you and then at least you can mark some off your list. Even for people who've boxed there many times and have close to half the boxes (me - with family trailname) it is still a bear to tackle and organize clues.

PLUS, by doing so you will start recognizing landmarks and grow familiar with the territory so that other clues begin to make sense.

True that. I am not able to relate since I grew up in that park. It is kind of like having people plant boxes in my back yard over and over...no research required. Just searching. ;)
