  1. SC07 is a standard box, at about 9100 feet, in the GPS route SILLIMAN CREST.

  2. Note: As the trail approaches the Seville Lake from the northeast, at 9100', it crests a small rise and drops very slightly to the lake. There is a sign/map at the top of the rise, showing where you can camp, and where the bear box is. Campsites are limited, but the best one seems to be at the north tip of the lake (the best scenery, if not the most space). The trail and the box are north of the lake outlet. The outlet does NOT show on the 7.5' topo, but is one gully southeast of where the trail approaches the lake.

  3. Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, June 2002:
    One standard size box is about 20' left (east) of the trail, and about 30' closer to the lake than the sign is. It is on the slight rise about 50 yards from the lakeshore, near the north-northeast corner of Lost Lake).

  4. Directions from Mineral King ranger info sheet, dated 1991:
    One box at the main camp area on the north side of Lost Lake.
