More about this marker. For years I have been attempting to locate and reach this tablet and several others in the Sherman Reservation, but I was using the traditional walking trails for attempting to locate this tablet. This year, instead of using the traditional points of entering and exiting the Sherman Reservation, I was able to use the trailhead that began near the end of Durand Avenue, to enter into the Sherman Reservation and immediately found three tablets that I had been trying to locate for years.
