  1. CG03 is four large boxes, at about 5000 feet, in the GPS route CEDAR GROVE.

  2. Note: As of 2004, the rangers say the southern parking loop (near the river) is for day use only. Backpackers must park in the northern loop and must have a car pass (issued with your permit). There were no signs to indicate this, and no obvious enforcement, but watch out!

  3. Directions from Steve Eckert, with GPS waypoint, July 2004:
    Four large boxes just uphill from the most northern parking loop, where the Copper Creek trail meets the pavement, at Road's End.

  4. Directions from 'pctPacker', Dec 1999:
    Four large bear boxes in the middle of the northern parking loop at Road's End (not the permit kiosk parking loop, the other one) roughly 5 miles east of Cedar Grove.
