We approached from the north, coming from the Waldo CoHP. Other reports list a southern approach.

From routes 220/3 just southwest of the Waldo CoHP, go 7.7 miles west on Route 3 to Thunder Ridge Road. Go south (left) for 2.4 miles to Gore Road. Zero the odometer. Go east (left) on Gore Road. At 0.4 mile, pass the fish hatchery, at 1.0 mile stay left. At 1.7 miles, cross Dead Water Slough. At 3.1 miles reach a house in a field on the left, address # XXX (lost my notes). The road up to the blueberry patch is about 100 feet before this house, on the right. The owner remembered meeting Trapper Robbins and Roxanne Everett and enjoyed having visitors. He assured us it was OK to walk up, staying off the blueberries. We were besieged by skeeters the whole way until we got out in the open field.

We agreed that the stone wall likely is close to the county line. We walked around the likely candidate area and on the way down looked for the marker which was supposed to be in the field a few hundred feet below the county line, which is also a gentle field ridge crest. It would be tough to call this one exactly. We did not have a GPS, which would help.
