Read Thread: Stone Mountain Park
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. ;)
