- MK03 is 3 large boxes, at about 7500 feet,
in the GPS route MINERAL KING.
- Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, June 2008:
Across the road (south) from the ranger station (just east of
the Cold Springs campground) is a small wooden storage building
in which you could formerly store trailhead food. There are now
steel bear boxes near this building. This ranger station,
and most trailhead parking lots in the area, have pay phones,
so you can call for repair after the marmots eat your car.
