- BC01 is a standard box, at about 6300 feet,
in the GPS route BUBBS CREEK.
- Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, June 1999:
One standard box in the campsite 50 yards from the bridge at the Bubbs/Sphinx
trail junction at a bearing of 40 degrees from the bridge, north of Bubbs
Creek, east of the trail junction. If this box is full, try BBBC02 which
is only a tenth of a mile away but harder to find.
- Directions from Tony Cruz, May 1999:
The bear box is on the Bubbs Creek trail, just beyond the bridge
over Bubbs Creek which marks the intersection with the Sphinx
Creek trail. It can be seen less than 100 yards from the spot where
one naturally drops the pack to get a breather before crossing the
bridge, leaving the Bubbs Creek Trail and taking the Sphinx trail.
The box is right in the middle of a large shaded camping area big
enough to sleep 20 people.
- Directions from Mineral King ranger info sheet, dated 1991:
One bear box above the Bubbs Creek trail east of the Sphinx Creek crossing.
