Amended directions: From the parking area follow the old dirt road along Edward Branch. After the first crossing you'll come to the field mentioned in directions above. Hike straight through (DO NOT GO LEFT). Follow Edward Branch past the first tributary on the right (approach to Buzzard Ridge) and continue up the streambed for a good distance through a minigorge until the corridor opens up. Look for a second tributary on the right in a tight bend in Edward Branch. Cross the tributary and hike NE to a prominent buttress. Pine Box is located near the SW corner and faces south.
