  1. RR02 is a standard box, at about 7400 feet, in the GPS route ROARING RIVER.

  2. Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, Aug 2003:
    One box on the west side of the Roaring River bridge and the south side of the trail (behind a bearbox signpost) between the ranger station and the bridge across Roaring River. There is a backpacker camping area across from the bear box on the north side of the trail, and a hidden latrine west of (and uphill from) the camping area. This is not a quiet place to camp, and horses may cover you with dust if you camp close to the trail. A water spigot near the ranger station is marked 'not potable'. There is a message board (with paper and pen) on the ranger station door.

  3. RR02 coordinates: (see waypoint and interactive map links above)
