To find the ammo can, go to the posted coordinates and find a very flat container that contains the coordinates for the final.

While on the trail you can visit the bird observation and a beautiful overlook of the Crooked River, don’t forget to bring you binoculars. There is no need to leave the trail to locate the cache and please no “bush whacking.”
