Keep the Black River on your right for just over 2 miles. Look for a dirt pull-off on the left, just around a bend...it's just before the town garage and old Army National Guard armory building.

Update to this Quest
Time has changed some of the natural markers mentioned in the original Quest. The clues here on the website are updated, but if you have one of Quest books you should follow these suggestions:
The arching tree is gone–proceed along the trail with the bog on your right.
The large birch tree is down on the forest floor.
Continue to the end point of the bog, stopping at a guidepost. You will see a S with and arrow. Continue with clues…look to the bog. Treasure is very close!
