- Once all the keys are found (total 20) we will get together and see who’s key opens the lock box.
- Inside the box you will find one key, a Tim Horton’s gift card worth $10 and a note.
1st Clue: On a rock in the river to the left of the trail head. FOUND
2nd Clue: Lindeman Lake Trail – Under a small rock. FOUND
3rd Clue: Mt Thom – Where the steep staircase used to be sorta in the middle of the hike. Now it’s just a steep path that some hikers still use. In a tree. FOUND
4th Clue: Lindeman – On the mossy rocks. FOUND
5th Clue: Mt Thom – The box is hidden in the rock wall. HOWEVER do not destroy the wall looking for it. I simply placed it between some large rock then used a smaller rock that was laying on the ground to hide it. You will only need to move a small rock about the size of a volleyball. FOUND
6th Clue: Lindeman Lake Trail – Take this picture with you…under some wood. FOUND
7th Clue: Elk – In a tree. FOUND
8th Clue: Teapot – Steepest part of the trail, located on the right (as you go up) NOT the scary drop off on the left. Also off trail. Been hard to find so far. DISQUALIFIED
9th Clue: Cheam Wetlands – FOUND
10th Clue: Great Blue Heron Reserve FOUND
11th Clue: Vedder Ridge Trail FOUND
I was up hiking on Sunday for over 3 hours and was surprised to not see any other hikers on the trail. Anyway I’ve hidden 2 keys on the trail. The first picture just shows where to go to get to the trail head. I find that this trail is a bit hidden and can be confusing for your first time.
I’ve driven my older CRV up to this point before and parked, the trail head is about 200 feet down this path then to the right into the trees. If you have a regular car you may want to park further down the road and walk up.
One key is located around the pond area.
12th Clue: You can see the end of the wooden path from where the key is placed. FOUND
13th Clue: Vedder Ridge Trail, stuffed in a tree in this location. FOUND
14th Clue: Still one more at Vedder Ridge Trail FOUND
15th Clue: The Vedder Ridge trail last key is located behind this stick in the fallen tree. FOUND
